UD Announces Competition for Five Full-Tuition Scholarships

IRVING, Texas (Jan. 10, 2024) — The University of Dallas has established an annual competition for full-tuition scholarships.

The Crusader Scholarship is open to all high school seniors who apply to UD. Applicants must finish their UD admission application by Feb. 14, 2024, and fill out the additional Crusader Scholarship application form.

The Crusader Scholarship will recognize well-rounded students who best represent what it means to be a UD Crusader. To be eligible, students must finish their UD application and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), meet minimum GPA and test score requirements, submit a short essay on why they would make a great Crusader, and participate in a one-hour webinar on Feb. 29 or March 2.

Five students will receive the scholarship, valued at more than $200,000, which will cover tuition for four years.

“The inaugural Crusader Scholarship Competition was created to identify young men and women who radiate competence, character, creativity, compassion, collaboration and distinction and who will resonate with the UD community,” said Carey Christenberry, director of undergraduate admission. “The ideal UD Crusader could be a quiet servant or a bold leader, an athlete or artist, a doer or thinker. He or she could be a poet, scientist, entrepreneur, coder, musician, philosopher, equestrian, musician — or an amalgamation of wide-ranging interests and passions. At his or her core, the ideal Crusader loves truth, seeks wisdom, pursues virtue and strives for a life well-lived.”
