Drexel's Veterans Award

In addition to VA benefits, Drexel University awards a $5,000 scholarship for tuition only to students who have served in a branch of the United States Armed Forces.

To be eligible for this award, a student must be admitted and enrolled as a new freshman or transfer student in a full-time undergraduate day program and have received or soon be receiving an honorable discharge. If you have questions regarding eligibility for the Drexel Veterans Award, please contact Drexel's Certifying Officials.

After you've begun classes, notify Drexel Central if there's a change in the total number of credit hours for which you're registered because this affects your certification.

Your benefits must be certified at the start of each academic year, so be sure to complete the Veteran's Benefits Certification Form every year.
