Scholarships & Other Options
A token of achievement
Scholarships and grants provide the best kind of financial aid–the kind you don’t have to pay back! While there may be overlap between these two types of support, grants are typically awarded based on financial need, while scholarships are given based on academic achievements.
Our scholarship funding comes from endowments and donations established by individuals, organizations, and the university’s general operating accounts. As soon as you complete your FAFSA, you’ll start the process of being considered for scholarships provided through Gallaudet and discover if you qualify for Federal grants.

Endowed Scholarships are a type of need-based scholarship provided through donors and the University’s endowment. For these scholarships, the Financial Aid Office can offer awards directly through your application for financial aid (FAFSA), in addition to assisting you with opportunities from other University offices or individuals.
