Scholarship Application Information

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.

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. Please send your questions to: Scholarships@Eccles.Utah.edu

The 2018-2019 application is anticipated to open January 2018.

The application is open to current business students, transfer and pre-business students. Currently enrolled pre-business students can apply at the same time that they apply for admission to Upper Division. Please note that the majority of scholarships are awarded to declared business majors. Applicants will be considered for any, and all, undergraduate scholarships available through the Eccles School of Business and for which they may qualify.

The majority of undergraduate scholarships are awarded to students enrolled full-time (complete a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester). 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. Please note that seniors graduating in Fall are still eligible to apply. The committee will also consider applicants enrolled part-time as long as they qualify and are the best candidate for a particular scholarship.
