Business Education Scholarships

Application process

School of Business scholarships are awarded based on the criteria established by the donor and the qualifications of the students. Most scholarships awarded are merit based, meaning that the higher the GPA and ACT scores, the higher the chances of receiving an award.  The scholarship committee strives to meet the requirements established by the donors.
