Scholarships

A concern was expressed that if a business student misses out on a scholarship in their first or second year, they’re out of luck when it comes to qualifying for scholarship assistance. That’s not true.

There are many scholarships available to students (even those in the last two years of their undergraduate program).

Currently, approximately $900,000 in scholarship funds is available each year. Some scholarships are even available to students in the last semester of their program.

How do you identify and apply for these scholarships?

Contact the Academic Advising Office. They’ll hook you up.

Also, stay involved with all school events. Then you’ll be more in-the-know.

Network with your fellow students and maintain open channels of communication with your professors, TAs and school support staff.

Be sure to find, follow and like the Eccles School on social media. We share scholarship and other important information there nearly every day.

In short, talk to people, be invested and do a little research of your own. There is a lot a funding available to students, and some of it might just have your name on it.
