DeVry University Scholarship Makes Career-Oriented Higher Education More Affordable

Looking to make a commitment to a New Year’s resolution about going back to school? DeVry University today announced a scholarship to help make that resolution for a college education more affordable. Beginning today, $11.5 million will be available through the university’s Career Catalyst Scholarship to qualifying new students who enroll for the March 2014 session by Feb 28. The scholarship can be worth up to $20,000 per student, depending on eligibility and the degree program. 1

“DeVry University’s history is rooted in making high-quality, career-oriented education attainable for students looking to launch or advance their careers,” said David J. Pauldine, president of DeVry University. “We understand that affordability impacts attainability, which is why this scholarship provides progressive financial support designed to help students both begin and complete their degree programs.”

Students who qualify for DeVry University’s Career Catalyst Scholarship are eligible to receive scholarship awards over a period of three years. For full details, visit DeVry.edu.

The Value of a DeVry University Education

In May 2013, the PayScale, Inc. annual College Return on Investment (ROI) Report underscored the value of a DeVry University degree; three campuses were included among the top 100 of 1,060 schools evaluated in the report. 2 Overall, 11 DeVry University campuses ranked in the PayScale ROI Report: North Brunswick, N.J. (74); Westminster, Colo. (75); Columbus, Ohio (79); Chicago (114); Pomona, Calif. (125); Federal Way, Wash. (132); Irving, Texas (141); Phoenix (170); Kansas City, Mo. (311); Miramar, Fla. (492) and Decatur, Ga. (544).

DeVry University helps prepare students to advance in their chosen careers: In 2012, 90 percent of DeVry University associate and bachelor’s degree graduates actively seeking employment had careers in their field within six months of graduation. 3
