A scholarship is an achievement award. Awards can be based on your affiliation with a particular major, being apart of a club/group, or based on your academic record.
You do not have to submit a FAFSA form or fill out an aid application to be considered
for an Academic Scholarship. It is awarded when you are accepted based on merit.
Duquesne academic scholarships are awarded for a maximum of 8 semesters, (12 semesters for Pharmacy students).
Prior to the start of your freshman year, if you increase your SAT/ACT scores you may be eligible to receive more scholarship (although not guaranteed). Please notify the Office of Admissions if you increase your scores on these tests.
