The University of Chicago is one of the most esteemed research universities in the world. U Chicago has had nearly 100 Nobel Laureates affiliated with the University and counts President Barack Obama as a former faculty member. The University of Chicago also offers some of the most generous financial aid in the world awarding both merit-based and need-based scholarships to students. In fact, U Chicago is one of the few schools that is both need-blind (which means that it does not consider a candidate’s ability to pay when making admissions decisions) and meets 100% of demonstrated financial aid.

The University of Chicago scholarships include the following awards:

- Dean’s Scholarship (which provides funding for research, internships, or summer graduate-level work)
