Welcome to DeVry University's High School Educators' and Counselors' Web Site

Scholarships help make college more affordable.

DeVry University's scholarship program makes college accessible for hardworking, talented students who may not have the financial means to pay for it all themselves. You might not know that DeVry University offers millions of dollars in scholarships and grants every year, including $45 million in available funds for the 2013-2014 school year. These are gifts that you do not have to pay back, and they are available to students residing in both the United States and Canada.*

We have a wide variety of scholarships available. To qualify for a DeVry University Scholarship, you must first meet the following criteria:

  • You must have applied for admission to DeVry University.
  • You must have met the DeVry University entrance requirements.

In addition, each DeVry University scholarship has its own unique qualifying criteria. Below you will learn more about the different types of scholarships from DeVry that may fit you. One of our advisors can also help you identify scholarship opportunities and complete any necessary applications.

Applicants are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to identify federal, state and other financial aid that may be available.
