Welcome to the DeVry University and Keller Graduate School of Management Scholarship

DeVry University has a long history of providing a quality education for students. Founded in 1931, the original school opened in Chicago, Illinois when Dr. Herman DeVry established the DeForest Training School to prepare students for technical work in electronics, motion pictures, radio and later television.  Nearly 100 years later, DeVry University and its Keller Graduate School of Management has students attending online and at its campus locations throughout the United States.

The DeVry Education Group Scholarship Fund has been established to keep education within reach by providing financial support in the form of scholarships to its students. The Scholarship Fund is a nonprofit organization that operates in concert with, but as a separate entity from the Universities.

Some students may struggle to find the necessary funds to advance their education. The Scholarship Fund strives to be part of the solution to bridge this financial gap by assisting students in defraying the cost of attending school.

Be sure to visit the website when the scholarship application period begins on December 1st. The open application period closes on February 15th. Applications will be processed and reviewed by an independent committee. Scholarship recipients will be notified by mid-May, after receiving approval from the board of directors. Scholarships will be disbursed at the beginning of the academic year.
