Scholarship Receptions

At the scholarship receptions that are held each spring, students have the opportunity to spend time with their scholarship donors and thank them personally for their generosity. Each reception focuses on an academic field with the students, faculty, and donors to that field in attendance. During the evening, an outstanding student is given the opportunity to address the donors and student to tell about how the scholarship has affected his or her time at DU.
