Kellstadt Graduate School of Business Scholarships

We offer various types of financial aid — often made up of scholarships, student loans, or a combination of both. Here, you’ll find information on several business graduate school scholarships that will help you finance your degree.

Scholarships for U.S. Citizens and Residents

The Kellstadt Graduate Scholarship is for new students who are U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents. Scholarship amounts vary, based, in part, on your academic profile and program. This is a one-time scholarship that spans the first three quarters of enrollment and cannot be used in conjunction with any other DePaul scholarships, waivers or awards. Students are automatically screened for this scholarship. For more information on this scholarship or any other scholarships and financial aid, contact us at kgsb@depaul.edu or (312) 362-8810.​

The Kellstadt Dean's Scholarship is for new students who are NOT U.S. citizens or permanent U.S. residents. Scholarship amounts vary, based, in part, on your academic profile and program. This is a one-time scholarship that spans the first three quarters of enrollment and cannot be used in conjunction with any other DePaul scholarships, waivers or awards.

Scholarships for DePaul Alumni

The Double Demon Scholarship is a 25 percent automatic discount for any newly admitted full-time or part-time student who has previously graduated from DePaul (bachelor's, master's or doctorate degree). The discount applies to any GRADUATE coursework students take after their initial degree was conferred.

The Double Demon Scholarship applies to:

  • Degree coursework
  • Certificate coursework
  • Non-degree coursework

Note the scholarship does not include coursework from the Center for Professional Education, Institute for Professional Development, coursework in a doctoral program or a master of fine arts (MFA), Music, Theatre, Law and a few other select programs.

The Double Demon Scholarship cannot be used in conjunction with any other institutional aid or discount. DePaul employees who are alumni are eligible for other employee tuition benefits through the university and, therefore, are not eligible for the Double Demon Scholarship.
