Through the generous support of alumni, friends and corporate partners, the Walker College of Business offers competitive scholarships to current and incoming students. The number of scholarships and amounts awarded vary each year and are subject to funds available. Scholarship amounts typically range from $500 - $2,000 per year and some are renewable. The Walker College of Business awards over $600,000 in scholarships annually.
Scholarship recipients are recognized during the annual scholarship reception, which was last held virtually October 23, 2020. The photo galleries can be viewed online.
