School of Business

Scholarships

In recognition of the quality of School of Business programs, many alumni, community leaders, and organizations have given generously to support academic excellence with financial aid for students. Thanks to  their generosity, we are able to offer scholarships to both incoming and current business students who meet the requirements.

It has been an honor to be the recipient of Business Scholarships throughout my pursuit of a BBA in Economics and Finance. I have used the financial stability offered by the scholarships to pursue my passion for people, academics, and building a stronger community. I am grateful for the generosity of others who have allowed me to gain an education and will soon be able to return the favor for the future generations of proud Ichabods! - Kelli Coldiron, BBA Economics and Finance, 2012
