Undergraduate Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded to Eller students based on a number of factors, including financial need, academic merit, leadership and involvement; most Eller undergraduate scholarships are for students admitted to the professional phase of the program. As a general rule, however, students do not apply for Eller undergraduate scholarships. Rather, departments have a faculty committee that makes awards based on classroom performance, leadership and service.


MBA Scholarships

The Eller MBA Program offers a number of merit-based scholarships to both U.S. and international students. Complete the third, optional essay during your application process to be considered for cash awards and scholarships.
