Scholarships Outside Denison
Outside Funding Must Be Reported to the Office of Financial Aid
Many enterprising students seek funding from scholarships that are based outside Denison. We strongly encourage all students to pursue privately funded scholarships. Each year Denison students add hundreds of thousands of dollars in outside scholarships to their funding, and in doing so, reduce their out-of-pocket costs and potential debt.
Denison does not post individual external scholarship opportunities but suggests these free scholarship search engines. The inclusion or exclusion of a particular website should not be interpreted as an endorsement or lack thereof by Denison. You are responsible for doing you own research and making your own evaluations of any available scholarship opportunities.
We also encourage students and families to search their communities to tap into local businesses, civic organizations, local library, banks and other groups to financial scholarship opportunities. Students also should speak with their high school guidance counselors for more information.
Please note that the time frame to apply for scholarships is normally from October to April of the previous year to be considered for the current year scholarships.
Please also note that students must report to the Office of Financial Aid all outside scholarships and other resources they have been awarded or know they will be awarded.
Federal regulations require that external scholarships be considered part of a student’s overall financial aid package, which cannot exceed the cost of attendance. Once a payment from an external scholarship is applied, your financial aid package may be revised to include the amount of the scholarship.
