Financial Aid & Scholarships

The Undergraduate Scholarship Committee has awarded all scholarships and financial aid for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters. We do not offer summer scholarships. The committee will continue to award undergraduate scholarships if additional funding becomes available during the academic year. For these new scholarships, the committee will reconsider students who applied in Spring 2017 but were not awarded.

2018-2019 Eccles School Undergraduate General Scholarship Application is closed

The committee will begin sending award letters by the end of April 2018. All applicants will be notified of their application status (awarded or denied) by the end of may 2018. Please send your questions to

Scholarship Eligibility
This application is open to undergraduate business students, including transfer and pre-business students. Applicants will be considered for any, and all, undergraduate scholarships available through the Eccles School and for which they may qualify. All scholarships will be awarded for the upcoming fall 2018 and spring 2019 semesters unless an exception has been approved by the scholarship committee or program director. We do not offer summer scholarships. The majority of scholarships are awarded to declared business majors who are enrolled full-time (complete a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester). Currently enrolled pre-business students can apply at the same time that they apply for admission to Upper Division. Scholarship recipients must maintain at least 3.2 GPA and continue to make progress towards a business degree at the University of Utah unless an exception has been approved by the scholarship committee or program director. Seniors graduating Fall 2018 are still eligible to apply and receive their award at less than full-time status. The committee will also consider applicants enrolled part-time as long as they qualify and are the best candidate for a particular scholarship.

Recipients of a Business Scholars Program scholarship (freshman, transfer, and four-year scholarships) are eligible to apply for scholarship support through the Eccles School General Undergraduate Scholarship application; however, they will only receive the scholarship of the highest value, not both awards. The committee will consider exceptions on a case by case situation; such as, but not limited to, if a student has high demonstrated financial need and or a student is the best and only qualified applicant for a particular award.

The undergraduate scholarship awarding process is competitive. For the 2017-2018 academic year, the committee received nearly 600 applications and awarded scholarships to 43% of applicants. The average scholarship amount awarded was $2,016 total and the recipients hold an average 3.77 cumulative GPA. The majority of the recipients are declared business majors or in upper-division.
