When you apply for admission to D'Youville, you will automatically be considered for one of our merit scholarships, and because we use realistic GPA goals, maintaining your scholarship is simpler than at many schools.

Last year, D'Youville awarded over $16 million in scholarships and 3 out of 4 first year in college students were awarded a scholarship or grant. Because we are committed to making a college education affordable to all students, we consider every student for our merit scholarships, based on their previous academic success.

In addition to merit scholarships, we also offer over 75 donor-supported scholarships to help you with the cost of your education. And once you are enrolled, you can access our donor-funded scholarships and 1,000s of others through ScholarshipUniverse — answer a short series of questions and be paired with and apply to scholarships at any time during your academic career.

Undergraduate Scholarships

Scholarships can cover as much as 50% of your tuition. No need to fill out a separate application to apply.

Your previous academic achievement is used to determine eligibility for many scholarships, while for others, financial need is considered. Transfer students are also eligible for scholarships and if you are in a combined degree program you can keep your undergraduate scholarship for all five years.

Graduate Scholarships

Nearly half of graduate students who apply for aid receive an institutional scholarship.

Graduate scholarships are awarded based on various criteria, including academic performance. And after your first year, you will automatically be considered for a retention scholarship by your academic departments.
