DAS | Continuing Emory Student Scholarships

Emory College of Arts and Sciences wishes to encourage high academic achievement and foster intellectual inquisitiveness among all its students.  As a step towards that end, the College awards a small number of merit scholarships to continuing Emory students.  These “continuing student merit scholarships" are collectively known as the Dean’s Achievement Scholarships (DAS) and are awarded each year to rising sophomores and juniors in the Emory College of Arts and Sciences who have demonstrated that they embody the Emory Scholars qualities including a high level of academic achievement and exemplary involvement in the academic and extracurricular life of the Emory community.

The Dean's Achievement Scholarship (DAS) typically consists of a $10,000 merit-based tuition scholarship for each of the selected student's remaining years in the College of Arts and Sciences.  Finalists for the Dean’s Achievement Scholarship are also considered for and may be awarded the Robert W. Woodruff Scholarship, which consists of full tuition, fees, and on campus room and board.  Students who are already receiving other Emory merit-based awards or courtesy scholarships, with the exception of the Liberal Arts Scholarship and Emory Opportunity Award, cannot receive additional financial assistance from this award.  For students who are receiving need-based financial aid, these awards will normally replace loan support in their financial aid package.  Students who receive a DAS award also become members of the Emory Scholars Program.  

DAS Scholarships include: the Robert W. Woodruff, Ammerman family, Henry L. Bowden, M. Brown, Jeanne Gold, Pat H. Odom, Norman C. and Henry J. Miller, Chris A. Yannopoulus, Emily Graham, Stahl Family, J. Pollard Turman, and Goodrich C. White awards.
