Tuition Coverage for Eligible Delaware High School Graduates!

SEED logo

SEED (Student Excellence Equals Degree) Scholarships are funded by the State of Delaware and cover tuition for eligible full-time students enrolled in the Associate in Arts Program (AAP) at the University of Delaware’s Wilmington, Dover, and Georgetown locations. SEED Scholarships are not offered to students who choose to begin their bachelor's degree pursuits at the University of Delaware in Newark.

A SEED Scholarship can be applied to an associate degree program, then potentially up to one year toward a bachelor's degree at UD for those transitioning from AAP to the Newark campus. The free tuition can be applied to up to 10 semesters, with no more than 2 semesters applied toward the bachelor's degree.

Students who wish to be considered for the SEED Scholarship must file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). No separate application is required, though UD cannot pay the SEED Scholarship to the student account until it has received the student's final high school transcript.

See below for more information about SEED. For additional information, visit Student Financial Services’

Associate in Arts page.

​Expansion of th​​e SEED Scholarship

The expanded SEED Scholarship is now available to more Delawareans!

  • The expansion removes the age restriction for applicants, so Delawareans of all ages (not just recent high school grads) can be eligible for the tuition coverage.

    • Applicants over the age of 25 must meet a five-year Delaware residency requirement.

  • All credit-earning programs are included, provided they lead to the award of an associate degree.

  • Eligibility is extended to 10 semesters, giving scholarship recipients additional time to complete an academic degree program. This is critical for those who are going to school while working full time.

  • Recipients may attend school part-time after their first semester.

  • Recipients may take a year off without losing SEED eligibility. Additional gaps in enrollment can be approved based on military or volunteer service, medical conditions, or personal/financial hardship, but gaps in enrollment do not extend the five-year funding period.

  • Eligible applicants include students with a GED or Delaware State Board of Education Endorsement Secondary Credentials.

  • SEED is now available to individuals with non-violent felony convictions.

Awarding​ Priority:

University of Delaware will receive a set amount of funding from the State of Delaware for SEED Scholarship awarding. UD will award SEED according to funding availability in the following order.

  1. Students enrolled in the Associate in Arts Program

  2. Pell-eligible graduates of the AAP, now in their junior year in a bachelor's program

  3. Other graduates of the AAP, now in their junior year who meet the SEED criteria based on EFC (as determined by FAFSA)

SEED Req​​uirements:

These original SEED requirements still apply.

  • The equivalency standards for Delaware home-schooled students shall be a complete home-schooled academic transcript, or a combined score of 1350 on the new SAT or a composite ACT score of at least 19.

  • Undocumented students must meet the same eligibility requirements as documented students. To qualify as an undocumented scholarship recipient, the student must have: (a) attended a high school located within the state of Delaware for two or more years; (b) graduated from a Delaware high school; (c) applied for all campus-based financial aid (scholarships, etc.) for which s/he would be eligible; and (d) submitted a notarized Tuition Affadavit (available in UD's Student Financial Services) which certifies thata the student is an undocumented person and that s/he has filed an application to legalize his/her immigration status or will file an application to legalize his/her application status as soon as s/he is eligible.

  • Individuals who lived in foster care under the jurisdiction of the Department of Services for Children and their Families at any point between the ages of 16 and 18, whether placed within or outside Delaware, qualify for the SEED Scholarship provided they meet in-state tuition residency requirements. These individuals must self-identify to Student Financial Services with proof of foster care status between the ages of 16 and 18.

  • A student shall have satisfied admission standards as determined by AAP Program at the University of Delaware.

  • A student shall have applied for all appropriate forms of financial aid for which the student is eligible including, but not limited to, the Federal Pell Grant, financial aid programs administered by the Delaware Higher Education Commission, and shall have accepted all such financial assistance offered or awarded to the student, except for loans. If Pell Grant funds cover full tuition, the SEED Scholarship will NOT be awarded. If Pell Grant funds do NOT cover full tuition, the SEED Scholarship will be awarded to cover the difference up to the cost of tuition. ·

  • An eligible student must apply for financial aid by completing and submitting the FAFSA. A student must complete all institutional forms and supporting documentation as requested by the campus. A student should apply for financial aid by the priority date of April 1 of each year.​
