Drew offers three significant, merit-based academic scholarships. All applicants will be considered for these awards and no additional application is required.



Application deadlines will vary with each Drew institution. Most are between January and March, but some are earlier. Many schools have a rolling admissions policy and will act on applications as they are received.

Apply Early!

There are some important reasons to submit your applications early:

  • Early applications for funding may be more successful. Funding deadlines are often earlier than application deadlines. Once available financial aid has been awarded, there will not be more until the following year.
  • Applications are often read in the order they are received even if there is an application deadline.
  • Since it is your responsibility to be sure that all supporting materials are submitted by the deadline, it will give you time to check on all documents.
