Supported by generous investors, the Second Century Scholars program awards four renewable full-tuition scholarships and several one-time Distinguished Scholar awards to incoming first-year students who show a wide-ranging curiosity about their world, a strong capacity for self-discipline, and a passion for academic excellence in service to their communities.
To be eligible for the scholarships, students were required to participate in the Second Century Scholars Day. They completed a series of interviews and a writing exercise, learned about UD's Scholar-Leader Honors Program through an informational session, met with UD faculty and students, and attended a dinner where they were recognized for their academic accomplishments.
