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 during the early through regular admissions periods will be automatically assessed for either merit- or need-based scholarships. Students who apply during the late admissions period may apply for a need-based scholarship in their second semester of the program. Please reach out to the Eccles Admissions Team near the end of the first semester to learn more and obtain a need-based scholarship application.
  • Scholarships awarded to domestic students are in the form of tuition and fees reduction, whereas scholarships awarded to international students are in the form of a tuition reduction.
  • Scholarships cannot be awarded during the summer semester.
  • Scholarships are non-renewable.
  • Students are awarded one type of scholarship. The Eccles Admissions Team will award the most generous scholarship type based on the student’s background and eligibility,
  • Full-time versus part-time attendance: If awarded a scholarship and attending the program full-time, the scholarship award will be disbursed in two installments for fall and spring; if awarded a scholarship and attending the program part-time, please contact the Eccles Admissions Team one month before the first semester begins to set up a scholarship disbursement schedule.

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.

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.
