Intelligent and talented students are among society’s principal resources, whatever their neighborhoods or economic standing.

While much has changed at the University of Denver through the years, our commitment to providing accessible education to the most talented and committed students remains. 

Scholarships help keep DU open to the brightest students from all backgrounds. Great students invigorate the academic and social climate on campus. They help to create an intellectual environment percolating with ideas, a truly fertile ground for learning. Their vitality encourages excellence in our faculty—creating a true synergy.

Perhaps most importantly, upon graduation, great students are more likely to become leaders in the world, and their lives of success, purpose, and meaning reflects the University’s mission to serve the public good.
