MCQUAID SCHOLARSHIPS

McQuaid Scholarships help undergraduate and alumni DUs fund their education.

About the McQuaid Scholarship

The McQuaid Scholarship Fund was established in July 2000 through the generosity of the Delta Upsilon International Fraternity, alumni and chapters. This scholarship is a tribute to James D. McQuaid, Chicago '60, for his service and contributions to Delta Upsilon as a six-year president of the International Fraternity and longtime advisor to the Chicago Chapter.

Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation currently awards up to a total of 10 merit-based undergraduate and graduate scholarships of $1,000 each academic year. Scholarship recipients are announced at the Leadership Institute each summer. Recipients also receive a certificate, recognition in the DU Quarterly, and their name engraved on a plaque at the DU International Headquarters.

For questions regarding McQuaid Scholarships, contact DUEF Development Director Meghan Bender.
