Robert W. Woodruff Dean's Achievement Scholars (DAS)

Emory College of Arts and Sciences provides an opportunity for first-year students in Emory College and Oxford College to apply to join the Emory Scholars Program through the highly competitive Robert W. Woodruff Dean’s Achievement Scholars (DAS) selection process.

The program seeks to find individuals with outstanding academic success who are grounded in the Emory Scholar Qualities of intellectual curiosity, creative thinking, servant leadership, communication skills, and commitment to community.
Among eligible applicants, approximately twenty rising sophomore students will be selected as Woodruff DAS Scholar Finalists and will each receive a $10,000 merit-based tuition scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded in each Scholar Finalist’s sophomore year at Emory College or Oxford College and is renewable for their junior and senior years in any of Emory University's undergraduate schools: Emory College, Goizeuta Business School, or the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing.

Students who are already receiving other Emory merit-based awards, with the exception of the Liberal Arts Scholarship and Emory Opportunity Award, cannot receive additional financial assistance from either award. For students who are receiving need-based financial aid, these awards will normally replace loan support in their financial aid package.

Merit scholarships of $10,000/year include: Henry L. Bowden, Madeleine Brown, Pat H. Odom, Norman C. and Henry J. Miller, and Goodrich C. White awards.

All Woodruff DAS Scholar Finalists will be invited to participate in an interview process. Through that process, three Emory College students and one Oxford College student will be selected as Robert W. Woodruff Dean's Achievement Scholars and become members of the Emory Scholars Program early in their sophomore year and for their junior and senior year, their $10,000 award will be replaced with the Robert W. Woodruff merit scholarship, which consists of full tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board for any of Emory University's undergraduate schools.

Typically, the Woodruff merit scholarship will replace all other Emory merit-based awards. If eligible, additional need-based aid may be awarded up to the total Emory Cost of Attendance for the relevant school.
