Scholarships & Financial Aid

Drake offers financial assistance that is designed to reward your academic achievement or abilities in the fine arts or athletics, as well as to help meet a portion of your family’s level of financial need. You may find that you qualify for both merit-based and financial need-based awards.

The renewable International Student Grant may offer a partial award toward financial need. This grant, however, will not provide full funding; although it may be awarded along with other scholarships, the total combined aid will not exceed 40% of the total cost of attendance.
