Scholarships & Financing

Financing Your Education

Investing in your business education is one of the best decisions you will ever make. How do you plan to pay for your education? You have many options and may be eligible for more assistance than you think. Plan early, and you’ll be better prepared.

Generous donors have provided The W. A. Franke College of Business more than $400,000 in scholarships to award in the next academic year. Scholarships may be awarded based on academic achievement, extracurricular activities, financial need, and/or major.

We are grateful to the donors who have chosen to make a difference in our students' lives. To follow is a brief description of each of our current scholarships.
