Funding Priorities - Scholarship Funds

In keeping with Duquesne University's Spiritan heritage, this campaign emphasizes significantly increasing the endowed funds designated for scholarships and need-based aid. Our founders and sponsors were determined that the benefits of a Duquesne education should be available to all, regardless of ability to pay.

Endowed scholarships ensure that Duquesne can attract and retain the most talented and motivated students for generations to come.

Particular emphasis is placed on minority grant funds, such as the Ronald R. Davenport and Charles Hamilton Houston Scholars programs, which benefit African American students and others who share a commitment to opportunity, diversity and inclusion.
