DUSON Scholarships

Merit Scholarship

All newly admitted DNP students are considered for the merit scholarship through their admission application. The faculty and the Admissions Office jointly select a recipient at the time of admittance. One DNP student is chosen to receive this scholarship for each fall and spring entry cohort. The scholarship funds a total of $29,000 disbursed among five semesters applied to tuition. Students must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to be eligible. The Admissions Office will notify all admitted students of their status once the recipient has been chosen.

The purpose of the merit scholarship is to provide tuition assistance to outstanding individuals who demonstrate academic achievement, creativity and innovation, exceptional communication skills, and the potential for significant leadership in their professional endeavors.

Students who are awarded the merit scholarship must remain in good academic standing throughout the program, and in collaboration with their Program Assistant Dean, contribute to the school in substantive ways.
