IMPORTANT FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is currently unavailable. The DRT, which is used to retrieve student (and parent or spouse) tax data and auto fill the financial section of the FAFSA, is expected to be unavailable for several weeks.

While this may be an inconvenience, the outage does not prevent students (and parents) from completing the FAFSA. They can still complete the FAFSA using their 2015 tax information (for both the 2016-17 and 2017-18 financial aid years), which will need to be entered manually in those fields on the FAFSA.

For more information, see this article or view this video.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 214-333-5363 or finaid@dbu.edu.

SCHOLARSHIPS

 

On this page you will find links to some of the many scholarships opportunities available to DBU students.

Each scholarship has specific eligibility requirements.

Some are based on academic performance or other special talents.  These are called merit-based scholarships.

Others are based on financial need. These are called need-based scholarships.

New students
should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for complete and current information on scholarships for new students.

Click on the category of scholarship below for additional information.


 

CURRENT STUDENTS:

Please consult Blackboard frequently during the semester for updates on private scholarship opportunities. All enrolled students are members of the "Student Scholarships Organization" in Blackboard. This organization should appear directly below our list of current classes when you open Blackboard. Private scholarships come from banks, private foundations, trusts and community organizations, not from DBU.

 

The spring of each year is the best time to apply for scholarships.  All private scholarships have spring deadlines that award for the following academic year.

 

If you have questions regarding a DBU scholarship, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at our email address finaid@dbu.edu or by phone at 214-333-5363. Please direct questions regarding private scholarships to the Office of Scholarship and Grant Resources at 214-333-5278.
