There are a number of opportunities to accumulate awards based on merit, performance, community involvement, and leadership abilities. Additionally, we offer a grant especially for students entering our management programs. Please remember that you do not have to limit yourself to one scholarship application! Students can apply for awards in all of our scholarship categories, provided they meet the specified requirements. The deadline to submit our scholarship application is April 30, 2019.
