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

To be eligible to apply for scholarships, students must submit a complete MSIS Online application by the scholarship deadlines and have a minimum 550 GMAT score. Scholarships require a separate application that will be sent to eligible applicants with their admission decision or shortly thereafter. 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. Scholarship amounts may range from $2,500 to $15,000 in total value.

Students are encouraged to apply early for the best chance of receiving a scholarship.

Scholarship Types

  • Graduate Fellowships: A number of graduate fellowships are available each semester. Students are awarded amounts ranging from $2,500-$7,500, 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: All applicants not meeting residency classification will be awarded a non-resident graduate fellowship with admission. This award is not applicable for summer semesters when all students pay resident tuition. Please contact to let admissions know you are a non-resident applicant or to find out more about non-resident graduate fellowships.
