Due to the generous gifts from the Hilton Foundation and other supporting friends of DePaul University, the School of Hospitality Leadership is fortunate to provide students with an abundance of scholarships. These scholarships are in addition to any other grants or financial support that a student may have secured. The School of Hospitality Leadership is building an endowment that will enable it to award scholarships on an ongoing basis.
