College of Business Undergraduate Scholarships

Awards are made on an academic year basis covering both the fall and spring semesters. To be eligible for an award, you must be an upper-division business major at the end of the spring semester in which application is made and a full-time student during the entire award period.

The College of Business accepts undergraduate scholarship applications in the spring of each year for the following academic year. One application is used to apply for all College of Business scholarships. You will be considered for all awards for which you are eligible. The deadline for 2017 applications has passed.
