Campaign Priority

Enhanced Access

The Sky's No Limit

The University of Dayton strives to ensure qualified students have the scholarships necessary to attend UD. Therefore, access is our highest campaign priority, with most funds raised going to affordability and access.

Thanks to generous donors and partnerships, nearly all UD students — 96 percent — receive financial assistance. Together, we can continue providing this access to a Catholic, Marianist education for current and future Flyers. Join us in by making a gift to help financial barriers through scholarships and innovative programs — and keep a UD education within reach.
