Catherine R. May Endowed Scholarship

The Cathy May Student Endowment and Expendable Scholarships were established to support DePaul University undergraduate Political Science students. This program awards financial assistance to eligible undergraduate students. The funds that support this student scholarship were set up in memory of our esteemed colleague and friend, Cathy May, who studied in the Department of Political Science as an undergraduate in the early 1980s and later returned as a faculty member and taught in the Department for over 20 years. These funds will go to political science students with financial need. Priority is given to students seeking support for an unpaid internship or a Study Abroad program. Financial support for other needs – including books, travel, fees, independent study projects or other education related expenses – will also be given consideration.

All awards are issued as scholarships to the student’s tuition account and are treated as financial aid. Please speak with Student Accounts to confirm what impact this will have on your tuition account and how money will be disbursed if there are no current tuition charges.
