  Scholarship Sunday


The Scholarship Sunday campaign has ended. Thank you for your support!

Scholarship Sunday is a statewide, faith-based fundraising initiative for scholarships at Delaware State University.

Last year, the University helped 749 students stay in school through private donations out of the thousands who requested financial assistance. Your participation in this year’s Scholarship Sunday will increase the amount of scholarship dollars available to support our students. You may very well have students within your congregation who attend DSU who will benefit from the funds raised.

There are 3 ways you can give to Scholarship Sunday:

1. Give a special offering of at least $10-$20 or more at a participating House of Worship on Sunday, March 9, 2014, on behalf of the students at DSU

2. Make a gift online

3. Mail your gift to:

Delaware State University
Office of Development

What is Scholarship Sunday?

Scholarship Sunday is a statewide, faith-based fundraising initiative for scholarships at Delaware State University. This year marks the third time.

Why should you give to DSU?

Students within their congregations may attend DSU and will benefit from the funds raised. Alumni may be in the congregation who personally understand the need for financial support given their experiences while attending DSU. Last year, the University was able to help 749 students stay in school through private donations out of the thousands who requested financial assistance. Your participation in this year’s Scholarship Sunday will increase the amount of scholarship dollars available to support our students.

Why should you give now?

Given that we are in the midst of Black History Month, financially supporting the students who attend the only historically black institution of higher learning in Delaware seems appropriate. 

How can I give?

You can give a special offering of at least $10-$20 or more at a participating House of Worship on Sunday, March 9, 2014, on behalf of the students at DSU. Online giving is also available or you can mail your gift to:

Delaware State University

How will the money be collected at my House of Worship?

Scholarship Sunday envelopes will be delivered to participating houses of worship. Once you have filled out the information requested on the envelope, just place your gift in it, and then seal it before placing the envelope into the offering plate. The gifts should be recorded by the church treasurer and secured. A designated University representative will coordinate a date and time to pick up the money.
