Need-Based Scholarships

Need-based scholarship support (including G. Wayne Clough Tech Promise Scholarships) provides critical funds for qualified students who would otherwise be unable to finance their college education. A named scholarship endowment can be established at $25,000 with the income allocation pooled with other funds at this level to fund general need-based scholarships. Endowed need-based scholarships above the $100,000 level can be established as a named scholarship and have a student designated to that scholarship.

Support for graduate student fellowships, whether at the MBA or PhD level, enables the college to attract more of the finest academic talent to the graduate program. These students bring exemplary levels of scholarship to the college and their respective fields of study and research, and with fellowship support they become well prepared for their careers, whether as global business leaders or innovative teacher-scholars. The college seeks to secure funding for 20 endowed Dean’s Fellowships for MBA students (9 funded; 11 available) and 10 endowed Dean’s Fellowships for PhD students (2 funded; 8 available).
