LAST CHANCE to help a team!! MAY IS SCHOLARSHIP MONTH! After a rousing success in last year's Blue Demon Scholarship Challenge, DePaul Athletic Development has designated May as scholarship month for 2013. As part of the Blue Demon Scholarship Challenge, the DePaul's athletic programs will compete for a chance for departmental awards for their scholarship accounts. Last year, because of great support from alumni, family and friends, the Inaugural Scholarship Challenge garnered a total of 151 scholarship gifts, totaling more than $38,000.


 

 

 

There will be three ways to win: 1) Award for most gifts to a sport's scholarship fund(s) (gifts of $100 or more), 2) Largest amount of total gifts to a sport's scholarship fund(s), and 3) Largest percentage of alumni who make a gift to a scholarship fund(s) (gifts of $100 or more). The program that wins each award will receive $1500 for their scholarship funds from the revenue generated by DePaul's on-line auctions throughout 2012-13. (The Scholarship Challenge only counts Scholarship gifts that are made between May 1 and May 31.)
