Presidential Transfer Award

Presidential Transfer Award

Presidential Transfer Awards are renewable based on consecutive full-time undergraduate enrollment.  Students who are enrolling part time or with previous bachelor's degrees are not eligible. No separate scholarship application is required, but students must first submit an application for admission.

Presidential Transfer Awards are guaranteed to all admitted first-time transfer students, enrolling full-time at Drake:

  • Spring 2023 Term: $19,000-$23,000 per year
  • Fall 2023 & Spring 2024: $21,000-$25,000

Members of  Phi Theta Kappa are eligible for Drake's PTK Scholarship.

The Presidential Transfer Scholarship and Phi Theta Kappa Scholarship cannot be combined.

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 (UP TO 4 YEARS TOTAL OR UNTIL A BACHELOR’S DEGREE IS EARNED) IF REQUIRED ACADEMIC STANDING AND GRADE POINT AVERAGE ARE MAINTAINED.
