Scholarships & Awards
Applicants for undergraduate business scholarships must complete the Undergraduate Scholarship Application for New Applicants or the Undergraduate Scholarship Renewal Application and submit it electronically through the Darla Moore School of Business Application Center. Applications were available beginning February 1, 2013 and were due by 5:00 p.m. March 1, 2013. Late and incomplete applications will not be considered.
Please complete the Scholarship Application in its entirety. You are required to upload a resume, answer the supplemental questions regarding your career goals and community service involvement. Thoroughly completing the optional questions and high school information will assist the awarding process.
Darla Moore School of Business departmental scholarships are competitive and limited. The number and amount of scholarships awarded vary and are subject to funds available. Students receiving awards are expected to have high GPAs and exemplary records of achievement. While a number of factors are considered, the majority of Darla Moore School of Business scholarships are based on academic performance. An applicant must have a 3.0 GPA to be eligible for a scholarship and be currently enrolled in the Moore School of Business. All new applicants will be reviewed for all scholarships for which you may be eligible.
Current recipients of Darla Moore School of Business scholarships (2012-2013 academic year) must reapply to be considered for the 2013-2014 academic year. Scholarships are not automatically renewed. If you have previously received a scholarship from the Moore School, your academic record will be verified and qualified renewals will be honored. Applications were available through the Darla Moore School of Business Application Center and were due by 5:00 p.m. on March 1, 2013.
Please note that awarding a scholarship amount of $500 or more only reduces tuition by the dollar amount and does not result in overall tuition reduction unless an academic unit elects to participate. The school has participated in the tuition reduction in the past, but due to budgetary constraints, the Moore School no longer participates in tuition reduction.
