Scholarships

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

All applicants who submit a complete application by the scholarship deadlines and have a minimum 550 GMAT score or an approved GMAT/GRE waiver will have the opportunity to be considered for merit-based scholarships. Scholarships require a separate application that will be sent to eligible applicants with their admission decision or shortly afterward. 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 $19,000 in total value.

For the best chance of receiving a scholarship, students are encouraged to apply by the priority scholarship deadlines.
