As scholarships funded from sources outside the University of Dayton become known to us, we'll post the opportunities here. As with any process requiring the submission of personal information, we advise you to take caution when doing so. You should also avoid applying for any scholarship which charges an application fee.
Be sure to review all eligibility and deadline requirements before applying. And remember, you can use Porches to notify us of scholarships you receive. All scholarship payments should be mailed to:
The Office of Financial Aid
University of Dayton
300 College Park
Dayton, OH 45469-1672
We also encourage you to utilize one of the many free scholarship search services on the Internet. These agencies scan their database of award opportunities and notify you to apply for those which match up against your personal profile. Some of the more popular ones are listed to the right.
