Des Moines University Scholarships

Academic Merit and Holistic Scholarships for Incoming Students

Each college’s admissions team annually identifies individuals from the entering class to receive these scholarships, which are funded by endowments in the respective college and Des Moines University. Scholarship recipients are chosen from finalists selected on a basis of their academic and holistic backgrounds. There is no application process as the admissions team determines recipients. Students with renewable scholarships must maintain the specific criteria in their scholarship letter. If a student fails to maintain eligibility at any point, they will no longer receive the scholarship for future years.

Glanton Fund

Established to recognize the contributions of the late Judge Luther T. Glanton and W. Stevenson Glanton to Des Moines University and the Des Moines community, the Glanton Fund assists students with professional and academic promise in attending the university. The Glanton Fund requires eligible recipients to demonstrate financial need, which is determined by a valid FAFSA on an annual basis.
