Military and Veterans
Drexel’s LeBow College of Business is proud to support our veterans and members of the military. Drexel University is the choice of over 800 student-veterans and military dependents. The Drexel Office of Veteran Student Services coordinates a campus-wide effort to ensure that student-veterans and military dependents are able to access high-quality campus services with ease; our goal is to create a truly military-friendly campus community through our welcoming and informative approach.

Drexel’s Veterans Award
In addition to VA benefits, Drexel University awards a $5,000 scholarship for tuition only to students who have served in a branch of the United States Armed Forces and whose educational costs are not being covered 100% by VA benefits. This award is renewable in any year that you are still not receiving VA benefits that cover 100% of your educational costs.
To be eligible for this award, a student must be admitted and enrolled as a new freshman or transfer student in a full-time undergraduate day program and have received or will soon be receiving an honorable discharge. Vocational Rehabilitation and Yellow Ribbon students are not eligible for this award since their tuition and fees are 100% covered by the VA.
If you have questions regarding eligibility for the Drexel Veterans Award, please contact Drexel’s certifying officials.
