Scholarship Sunday is part of the Greater Than One: Campaign for Students, a multi-year campaign for students that connects you to DSU’s proud and historic legacy of helping to transform the lives and futures of our students.

  Scholarship Sunday

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

Last year, the University helped 699 students stay in school through private donations out of the thousands who requested financial assistance. Your participation in the 4th Annual Scholarship Sunday initiative will increase the amount of scholarship and financial aid dollars available to support our students in 2015.

More information about Scholarship Sunday: 

Why should I give now?

You may very well have students within your congregation who attend DSU who will benefit from the funds raised. More than 85% of undergraduate students at Delaware State University depend on scholarships or financial assistance. They have the grades. They have the desire. Help us ensure that they have the funding to complete their education.

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 donations.
