Walden offers merit-based scholarships for academic and professional accomplishment. More detailed information about the following scholarships and others that may also be available to Walden students can be found in the Tuition and Financial Aid section of the Walden website under Scholarships.

Commitment to Social Change Scholarship

The Commitment to Social Change Scholarships are awarded to graduate (master’s and doctoral) students new to Walden University who demonstrate the capacity to effect positive social change and, at the doctoral level, to conduct and succeed at research. Note: This scholarship is administered by the Office of the President, not the Office of Financial Aid.

Dave Palmer Military Scholarship

The Dave Palmer Military Scholarship, named for a former Walden president, is awarded to a doctoral student enrolled at Walden who has been on active duty with a branch of the U.S. armed forces for a minimum of 1 year. The recipient must demonstrate that the degree is a logical progression of personal and professional development, that the research component of the degree program relates to his or her professional obligations, and that the dissertation research will contribute directly to the enhancement of the mission of his or her service. Note: This scholarship is administered by the Office of the President, not the Office of Financial Aid.

National Public Service Scholarship

National Public Service Scholarships are awarded to doctoral students who have dedicated their careers—and continue to do so—to public service and to the nation, in either public or nonprofit agencies with a national focus, and who seek their degrees to enhance their effectiveness professionally and in service to the national community. Note: This scholarship is administered by the Office of the President, not the Office of Financial Aid.

Presidential Scholarship

The Presidential Scholarships are for graduates of a Walden master’s program who are pursuing a doctorate degree at Walden. Applicants must demonstrate a personal, continued commitment to their chosen field and indicate how learning is applied to practice. Note: This scholarship is administered by the Office of the President, not the Office of Financial Aid.
