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. We grant more than half a million dollars in such aid annually.
All program applications submitted and completed by the Scholarship Deadlines will have the opportunity to be considered for merit-based scholarships. Scholarships require a separate application that will be sent to eligible applicants with their admission decision or shortly afterward. Criteria for selection of awards include demonstrated excellence in academic or professional pursuits, as assessed in your program and scholarship applications.
Scholarships are primarily in the form of a tuition reduction. The amount of a scholarship award depends on the competitiveness of the admitted applicant pool as well as available funding.
For the best chance of receiving a scholarship, students are encouraged to apply by the priority scholarship deadlines.
- Graduate Fellowships: A number of graduate fellowships are available each semester. Students are awarded amounts ranging from $1,000 – $10,000, directly applied to fall and spring tuition bills in two equal payments (for example, a $5,000 award would be disbursed as $2,500 for fall and $2,500 for spring).
- Non-Resident Graduate Fellowships: For students not meeting residency classification, including international students, financial awards are available to cover a portion of the difference between resident and non-resident tuition. These awards are applied directly to your tuition account, and eligible students must enroll in at least 9 credit hours per semester. This award is not applicable for summer semesters when all students pay resident tuition. Non-resident award amounts range from $7,500 – $19,000.
- Graduate and Teaching Assistantships: A limited number of graduate and teaching assistantships are available each semester. Students are paid an hourly rate for a set number of hours per week and also receive a scholarship applied directly to their tuition bill. Assistantship applications will be sent to all eligible students when available – typically 1-2 months before the semester start. Assistantship awards range from $2,500 – $5,000.
- Amounts and availability of all scholarships are subject to change.
- Scholarships for MRED students are primarily graduate fellowships awarded at admission. Students are only eligible for admissions scholarships during the term for which they are applying (for example, spring 2017 applicants are not eligible to apply for fall 2017 admissions scholarships).
- Admissions scholarships are not available for students starting in summer semester. However, students beginning in summer are eligible to apply for open graduate and teaching assistantships.
- Assistantship positions are typically open to both newly admitted and current students. Announcements of open positions and how to apply are sent by program advisors.
