Scholarship Opportunities for students

As the sun gives light to the earth, Dominican university uses her scholarships to give a bright future to her students through financial support rendered to them for their university education. Thus, the university aims at celebrating outstanding students who have demonstrated excellent academic performance, proven themselves to be worthy ambassadors of the university through their moral conduct but have financial challenges in furthering their university education. These opportunities are available to students who are already studying with us. This enables us to monitor their academic and moral progress and to encourage them to attain their best human potentials.

What Our Scholarship Offer

Some of our students are currently enjoying these opportunities. Some are enjoying a full scholarship which covers their tuition, accommodation and also entitles them to an upkeep allowance.  Some others are placed on partial scholarships in which the funding pays their tuition only. They are grateful to their respective sponsors for these immense opportunities.

We Appreciate the Generosity of Our Scholarship

The university is sincerely grateful to the Vanderhosrt family foundation and other sponsors of this scholarship funding through which our students have been assisted to acquire the quality university education that we offer at our university.

Who Can Apply for the Scholarships?

  • A student who has spent at least one academic year at the university
  • One with a CGPA of at least 4.0 (priority will be given to those with higher points)
  • One who has been of exemplary behavior in the university
