Welcome It is with great pleasure that we offer the Inspire Scholarship for Delaware high school graduates to attend Delaware State University. As an institution of higher education created and supported by the First State, this scholarship will enhance DSU’s efforts to fulfill its mission of providing students with a meaningful and relevant education. I am confident that the Inspire Scholarship will help make the dreams and aspirations of Delaware’s young people become a reality. Dr. Harry L. Williams, president Delaware State University Requirements The Basics: Be regularly admitted and enroll in the fall semester immediately following graduation from a Delaware public or non-public high school Earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale, as indicated on the student's official high school transcript Complete the FAFSA by March 15 and accept all forms of financial aid for which the student is eligible, except for loans Have no felony convictions Complete 10 hours of community service, as defined by the institution, each semester at DSU (Top) The Details: The Inspire Scholarship is available to Delaware high school graduates with excellent credentials to attend Delaware State University. The intent of this program is to offset the cost of tuition, thereby increasing the number of Delawareans who attend college and complete degree programs. The scholarship program is subject to available funds appropriated by the Delaware General Assembly. Inspire scholarship recipients must continue to make excellent academic progress toward a degree and must complete at least ten hours of community service per semester.   1.     A student must be admitted and attend classes at Delaware State University no later than the fall semester immediately after the student's graduation from a Delaware public or non-public high school.

If a student has felony charges pending, the student and parent/legal guardian or relative caregiver will sign a certification that if the student is convicted of a felony, the student, parent/legal guardian or relative caregiver will notify the Office of Financial Aid at Delaware State University, and the student will no longer be eligible for the Inspire Scholarship. 3.     A student must satisfy admission standards as determined by Delaware State University and must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program. 4.     A student must complete 10 hours of community service, as defined by the institution, per semester. 5.    A student must submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA The DSU school code is 001428), and accept all appropriate forms of financial aid for which the student is eligible including, but not limited to, the Federal Pell Grant, financial aid programs administered by the Delaware Higher Education Commission, and financial aid programs administered by Delaware State University, except for loans.  If other forms of financial aid (not including loans) cover full tuition, the Inspire Scholarship will NOT be awarded. If financial aid funds do NOT cover full tuition, the Inspire Scholarship will be awarded to cover the difference up to the maximum of $3,000 per year. A student should apply for financial aid by the priority deadline date of March 15 of each year. Students meeting the March 15 priority deadline will be given first priority for the Inspire Scholarship in the event the number of eligible scholarship recipients exceeds funding appropriated by the Delaware General Assembly.         6.     A final official academic transcript must be received by the Office of Admissions at Delaware State University no later than June 30 of each year to verify graduation and   final cumulative GPA.
