David A. Plastino Scholars Program

The Plastino Scholars Program was also established in 2007 by a gift from UD alumnus David A. Plastino. The Program awards study grants to selected undergraduate students at the University of Delaware who exhibit extraordinary talent, promise and imagination. The grants support self-designed, off-campus learning experiences that make a transformational difference in the lives of Plastino Scholars and enable them to pursue a passionate interest to a degree not otherwise possible. Normally, four Plastino Scholars will be selected each year. The amount of each award will depend on the nature of the experience proposed.
Any undergraduate student at the University of Delaware may apply provided that, at the time of application, he or she is enrolled for at least twelve semester hours and has completed at least one but not more than six semesters.
