The Power of UD Scholarships

Scholarships play a vital role in shaping the UD experience for all Flyers. In addition to opening our community to deserving students from around the world, and right here in Ohio, scholarships also provide broad opportunities for students across campus to participate in experiential learning, academic research and service.

2020-scholarship-page-updates-01.jpgWhen you donate to a scholarship, you make it possible for our students to accomplish more academically and become forces for positive change. The first impact we see from these students is right here on campus as they broaden our perspective and deepen our daily discourse.

Thanks to your generosity, we currently offer more than 600 named scholarships. With their financial burdens lessened, scholarship recipients truly have the freedom to learn, discover and adapt as servant-leaders for our community and beyond.

I have never been able to see myself anywhere besides Dayton, but also likely would have looked elsewhere if I didn’t have access to scholarships like this one. You are the reason I get to reflect on my amazing school and for that I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel.
