The Rector Scholarship

DePauw’s oldest and preeminent merit academic scholarship.

Since its beginning in 1919 over four thousand graduates have earned Rectors, and many are among DePauw’s most distinguished and honored alumni. They are the return on how Edward Rector, himself, described his gifts to the University. They were “investments in humanity, in the men and women who are to carry on the work of our country and the world when you and I are gone.”


To be invited to apply for the Rector Scholarship you must first be nominated by a high school counselor or teacher. The nomination deadline is January 15.
