Scholarships

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

To be eligible to apply for scholarships, students must submit a complete MSIS Online application and receive an offer of admission. Scholarships require a separate application that will be sent to eligible applicants with their admission decision or shortly thereafter. 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 $15,000 in total value.

New: Corporate Benefit Scholarship

Does your company offer tuition reimbursement? If so, the MSIS program will match your company’s tuition benefits up to $5,000. We understand that working during school intensifies your commitment to pursuing a graduate degree. We also recognize the value of gaining work experience during the program and having an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge for your company. As such, we are proud to match your employer’s tuition reimbursement (up to $5,000). Please note, this award applies to Spring 2020 admits and beyond.
