Presidential Transfer Awards ranging from $10,000-$13,000 are awarded to qualified transfer students. All first-time transfer students enrolling full-time at Drake are considered for merit-based scholarships at the point of admission.
No separate application is required but students must first submit an application for admission.
Presidential Transfer Awards are renewable based on consecutive full-time undergraduate enrollment. Students with previous bachelor's degrees are not eligible.
Awards are based on a variety of criteria depending on the type of scholarship and are not based on financial need. PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL SCHOLARSHIPS ARE RENEWABLE IF REQUIRED ACADEMIC STANDING AND GRADE POINT AVERAGE ARE MAINTAINED. For students entering the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences merit aid is available only through the fourth year of the six-year program.
