Outside Scholarships

In addition to the awards available through DePauw, Federal, and Indiana sources, there are many other organizations that also offer scholarships.

We encourage you to explore scholarship opportunities from civic and private organizations and foundations. These could be based on your parents' employment, church affiliation, or your own academic interests and an outstanding academic record. Check with your high school counseling office or use the Scholarship Search Engine links at the bottom of the page.

Please also refer to the Outside Scholarship Policy page for guidance on how outside scholarships impact financial aid awards.
