Living on campus is an important part of the University experience and students are required to live on campus and have a meal plan for their first two years. It's your chance to enjoy life in an around-the-clock academic community that values learning, sharing and diversity.
For most students, living on campus is one of the most memorable parts of their time as a DU Pioneer. Residential life is about much more than where you sleep, it is all about becoming friends with students from around the world and building a community of students who work, learn, and play together.
The Student Development Scholarship is intended for students to use for development opportunities in areas that align with Housing and Residential Education's four core values: Diversity and Social Justice, Sustainability, Student Support and Development, and Staff Support and Development. Examples of development opportunities include: fees and/or travel expenses for conferences or assistance with expenses related to job search and interview processes (especially when travel is required).
Any student wishing to apply for funding from this program may do so by submitting an application with a short written essay addressing the intended use of the money and how it relates to one of our values. Applications will be reviewed by the Student Development Team. Funds are disbursed on a rolling basis as applications are received and reviewed. All current residents or students who have fulfilled their 2-year live on requirement are eligible for this scholarship.
Submit applications via e-mail to Demitrius Brown, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Student Development Value Statement
The University of Denver Department of Housing and Residential Education holds student support as a core value of our residential communities. We strive to offer students a quality and meaningful experience and want students to value and grow from their residential experiences. Responsibility to the community is encouraged through an educational conduct process and involvement in the community. Through educational and social programming, our residents will be exposed to new opportunities, new challenges, new communities, and new ideas that will enhance their education out of the classroom. We have student organizations that are student-led, student-focused and provide leadership opportunities for all residents. Housing and Residential Education believes students are at the core of our work and we seek to actively cultivate a collaborative and caring environment where students lead the way.
