Scholarships, Grants, and Financial Aid
At Drake, 100% of full-time undergraduate students receive gift aid (scholarships and/or grants).
We offer schooling grants designed to reward your academic achievement or talent in fine arts or athletics, and 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.
