DU Sets $45M Scholarship Matching Challenge

Nearly all DU undergraduates receive some form of financial aid.  Nearly two-thirds of students who receive financial aid do not have their financial need fully met. On average, that gap is $6,500 per year.

The University aims to eliminate the need gap so that we can attract and retain the brightest students.  Through the Momentum Scholarship Challenge, DU is matching private philanthropy with its own resources to endow $45 million in new scholarship funding for undergraduate and graduate students by 2018.

“Scholarships have a far-reaching impact on students’ lives,” said Dean Danny McIntosh, who is a DU alumnus (BA ’87, psychology). “I know this firsthand. I was able to attend DU only because of a scholarship, and I can honestly say it changed my life. These scholarships can remove the question of college affordability for today’s students.”

The University’s ongoing strategic planning process, Imagine DU, is addressing both the urgent and future needs of the University.  The Momentum Scholarship Challenge emerged from the first phase of the strategic planning process, which was focused on identifying immediate actions that the University could take to improve the student experience.
