College of Business Undergraduate Scholarships

Each year the College of Business Scholarship Committee awards a number of scholarships to upper-division business majors (rising juniors and seniors). 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 upcoming academic year. One application is used to apply for both college-wide scholarships and department scholarships. You will be considered for all awards for which you are eligible. The scholarship application is now open. Applications will be accepted until March 11, 2018.

Based on a single application, applicants are considered for all applicable awards and award recipients will be announced at the end of June. Scholarship awards are distributed in two equal installments, one at the beginning of the fall semester and one at the beginning of the spring semester.
