Institutional Scholarships

Dillard University offers a competitive Scholarship/Grant Package to eligible first-year students who demonstrated strong academic performance in high school. The primary criterion used to determine a student’s eligibility is based on the students’ ACT/SAT score and Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA).  However, in one or more of the scholarship and/or grant awards, there are other components that can factor into the student’s eligibility which includes:  State of Residence, Housing (on-campus vs. off campus), and other Resources (Grant/Scholarships) the student may be receiving. All students who are regularly admitted to Dillard University have a strong chance of being awarded one of the following merit based awards!
