McIntire School of Commerce: Awards, Honors, and Scholarships


Return to: McIntire School of Commerce 


Scholarships There are no scholarships for which newly admitted students can apply. Students whose families qualify for financial aid are automatically considered for certain scholarships as part of their aid package through University Student Financial Services. Regardless of financial need status, enrolled students who can demonstrate satisfactory progress toward their degrees have the opportunity to apply for a number of corporate or endowed scholarships. These have specific restrictions, such as GPA, major field, academic level, intended area of employment, geographic location, and demonstrated leadership. The scholarship application process is publicized to third year students in early spring and scholarships are applied to the students tuition for the fourth year.
