Presidential Transfer Award

Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 Enrollment Terms:  Presidential Transfer Awards ranging between $17,000 to $20,000 are guaranteed to all admitted first-time transfer students, enrolling full-time at Drake.  No separate scholarship 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 who are enrolling part time or with previous bachelor's degrees are not eligible. 

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

**Beginning Fall 2020/Spring 2021, 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. For students entering one of Drake’s joint undergraduate/graduate degree paths, refer to the table below to see how undergraduate awards (including Fine Arts Scholarships) are impacted.
