Business Scholarships

So you’re thinking about attending business school? Prepare yourself for large classes and, if you attend a state college, lectures with enough people to fill a large auditorium (which, as you would expect, will likely be held in a large auditorium).

Colleges attract a lot of business students; after all, it makes sense to invest in your education if you want to be successful in business. Also, those majoring in business tend to get a return on their educational investment much more quickly than students in many other majors. In fact, Business Management and Administration was reported to be among the most popular college majors with students today. It makes sense: Not only is business a profitable major, but business majors also have more options than almost anyone else as far as future employment prospects are concerned. If you’re not settled on a career, it’s probably a better choice than, let’s say, history, philosophy or art.

But with the good also comes the bad. Seeing as business programs are not lacking in applicants, schools don’t trip over themselves to offer students full-tuition business scholarships. More often than not, it’s the student who ends up looking for financial aid. And if federal student financial aid is not enough, then it’s time to look elsewhere. Researching business scholarships created especially for business students is a great place to start.

As you very likely have surmised, business scholarships can only be granted to those pursuing a business degree. Whether offered by large corporations, private providers or schools, there are many to choose from. Get a head start finding business scholarships by conducting a free college scholarship search at Scholarships.com. In addition to business scholarships, you can find awards based on all manner of different criteria (essay, merit-based, etc.), resulting in multiple scholarship opportunities. Below is a short list of available scholarships for those who are or will be studying business.
