DSU Rising Scholarships

DSU Rising Scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate academic excellence and commitment to their studies. These scholarships ensure that our current and future students receive a remarkable education, without having to worry about financial obligations.

The DSU Rising Annual Scholarships were established as a four year guarantee of $20,000 ($5,000 per year). You don’t need to apply for DSU Rising Scholarships—we award them automatically based on certain academic criteria upon admission.

Please note that, once you’ve started classes at DSU, you will no longer be eligible for this scholarship. Once the scholarship is awarded to you, however, it is renewable as long as you attempt and complete 24 DSU credits per academic year and maintain a 3.25 GPA. This scholarship is only available for eight semesters of enrollment, which includes the semesters completed at your other post-secondary institution(s) or college(s).
