									                                   Scholarship Program 2011-2012


The Office of Adult Student Affairs is pleased to announce their Scholarship Program for the 2011-2012
academic year. This program is designed to assist the growing number of adult learners who are returning to
school. Two students (one undergraduate and one graduate/professional student) will be chosen from the
applicant pool each term, including summer. Each regular year academic term recipient will be awarded a
$2,000 scholarship and the summer term recipients will receive a $1,000 scholarship. These awards are not
renewable and winners of the scholarships cannot apply for another Adult Student Affairs Scholarship in
the same academic year.



Fall Quarter = 2 students - $2,000 each         Winter Quarter = 2 students - $2,000 each

Spring Quarter = 2 students - $2,000 each       Summer Quarter = 2 students - $1,000 each



Students who have applied, but have not received a scholarship may apply again within the same academic year.

Winners of the scholarship have the option of having the funds applied to their tuition or towards a DePaul
University sponsored Study Abroad trip for the quarter in which they are awarded the scholarship. Winners
must be enrolled at least half time or registered for the study abroad trip in the term for the quarter in
which they are awarded the scholarship. Current financial aid packages may be adjusted when the
scholarships are applied.
