Scholarships

Let's make the cost of your business education a little easier.

Each year, the College of Business offers numerous scholarships to get you one step closer to achieving your dreams. And working together, we can make it happen. The scholarships application is available in the STARS web-based scholarship module. This application is only for current College of Business students. Applicants to the College of Business are all evaluated for scholarships based on their application for admission. There are no additional forms nor applications that need to be filled out by applicants.

The application period for College of Business undergrads who are currently enrolled in classes begins the first Monday in February and continues until the last Monday in March at noon. Applicants for the Colleges of Business, freshman and transfer, will be considered for scholarships once they have been admitted to the College of Business. The admissions application doubles as the scholarship application for scholarships awarded by the College of Business
