General School of Business 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.  

There is no separate scholarship application process for the below scholarships unless a link is included. 

Scholarships awarded by professional organizations have separate application processes.
