Tuition Assistance


The Institute for Professional Development is pleased to announce a new need-based financial award, the Chou Family IPD Scholarship, to provide funding for students interested in our certificate programs in Summer Quarter 2021.

Select students may qualify for awards in the amount of $1,000 to be used towards the tuition fee for an IPD certificate program for the upcoming summer quarter. Students are limited to receiving one award per program and a maximum of two awards per individual.

Please note, these financial awards cannot be combined with any other institutional aid.  In addition, applicants who will be using DePaul's Employer Tuition Deferral Plan or a third-party billing arrangement are not eligible.

Submissions will be evaluated by the Scholarship Committee and applicants will be notified of the committee's decision by June 2, 2021.
