Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of individuals, corporate donors, and the University of Utah, the David Eccles School of Business provides many merit- and need-based scholarship opportunities to exceptional students.

Note: The Eccles Admissions Team will notify admitted students of their eligibility to apply for a need-based scholarship or that they are eligible to receive a merit-based scholarship.

Students who are admitted into the program within the priority deadline will be automatically assessed for a merit- or need-based scholarship. Students who are admitted into the program after the priority deadline but within the final deadline have the opportunity to apply for a need-based scholarship.

Students with high undergraduate cumulative GPAs, as well as other high-achieving attributes, qualify for a merit scholarship. Resident students are eligible for a $5,000-$7,500 merit scholarship. Non-resident students are eligible for a $19,000 merit scholarship.

Students who qualify for a need-based scholarship will automatically be emailed a need-based scholarship application. Please complete the application within a week of receiving it to be considered. In addition to a completed scholarship application, domestic students must also apply for financial aid. Scholarship amounts vary depending on the student’s financial background and other related factors.

Two admitted students in the fall cohort and one admitted student in the spring cohort will be considered for this scholarship. Candidates for this award will be notified on July 1 for fall admission and Nov. 1 for spring admission. Resident students selected for this award will receive $15,000, while non-resident students will receive $25,000. The eligibility requirements are:

  • Admitted students must demonstrate in their need-based scholarship application the reasons that impact them from attaining a MAcc degree due to a significant lack of financial resources.
  • Admitted domestic students must submit proof that they applied for FAFSA and that they participate(d) in programs or fellowships that support lower socioeconomic, underrepresented, or marginalized populations.
