DeSales has many opportunities for deserving students

Thanks to help from our generous donors, DeSales is proud to offer several scholarship opportunities for our students. 

Merit Scholarships

DeSales University recognizes students' academic achievement in high school by awarding two categories of academic merit scholarships. 

Priority consideration is granted to students who have applied by December 1 of their senior year. 

The selection process for these scholarships is competitive with awards going to top-ranking applicants based upon grade point average, class rank (if available), and SAT or ACT scores (if provided).

  • Presidential Scholarships - $22,000 to full tuition annually

  • Trustee Scholarships - $5,000 to $15,000 annually

A separate application is not required.  Academic scholarships are available for up to eight semesters. 

Scholarship notification

  • If you file your FAFSA prior to January 1 
    Notification of scholarships will be included in your financial aid package
  • If you file your FAFSA after January 1 (but prior to Feb 1 deadline)
    Notification will be sent independently of your financial aid package

Because we are a NCAA Division III institution, leadership in athletics cannot be considered in the awarding any scholarships or grants.
