The Delaware SEED Scholarship Program is offered by the State of Delaware and covers tuition for full-time students enrolled in the Associate in Arts Program. SEED Scholarships are granted to Delaware residents who graduate from a Delaware high school with a GPA of 2.5 or higher, enter directly into the AAP from high school, and have not been convicted of a felony. Enrollment in at least 24 credits per academic year and a 2.5 GPA must be maintained to continue eligibility while in the Associate in Arts Program.

For freshmen who will be entering the Associate in Arts Program, the University of Delaware will award SEED Scholarships to as many eligible students as State funding will allow. In selecting students, UD will give priority to students who have the most financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). UD begins reviewing new students in March; it is strongly recommended that families file their FAFSAs (available at by the end of February for first consideration.
