The David Eccles School of Business provides merit-based scholarship opportunities for our exceptional students thanks to the generosity of individuals, corporate donors and the University.

All admitted students are considered for merit-based support; no separate application  is necessary. Criteria for selection of awards include demonstrated excellence in academic or professional pursuits. Notification of merit-based awards is included with admissions decisions.


Eligible students must be full-time, matriculated graduate students in good standing, with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0. Full-time student status means registration of at least 9 credit hours per semester. Both domestic and international students are eligible for scholarships.

Award Amounts

The amount of a scholarship award depends on the competitiveness of the admitted applicant pool. For the Fall 2016 MHA class, awards ranged from $1,500 to $35,000 in total value. Eighty percent of students received a scholarship award.


Scholarship Types

Non-Resident Tuition Assistance

The Eccles School is also able to award special scholarships for domestic applicants who do not qualify for Utah residency.

If you are applying for the MHA program but will not qualify for resident tuition, including international applicants, you may be eligible to receive non-resident tuition assistance to significantly reduce the cost of your program.

All out-of-state applicants are automatically considered for this scholarship. Applicants with a Utah address but who may not qualify for residency are encouraged to email us at to request consideration.


The MHA program is approved as a WGRP program for non-residents. The Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP) allows master’s, graduate certificate and Ph.D. students who are residents of the WICHE-member states to enroll in some 320 high-quality programs at 56 participating institutions outside of their home state and pay resident tuition.

The WICHE states include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam. For more information about the WGRP program, visit WICHE online.
