Scholarships & Financial Aid

At Drake, 98 percent of undergraduates receive financial aid from the University, with the average award being $22,190.

We offer scholarships designed to reward your academic achievement or talent in fine arts or athletics, and also financial aid to help meet your family’s level of financial need.

You may find that you qualify for both merit-based and financial need-based awards. We make every effort to provide the most complete financial aid package to you in your first award notice.
