GSBS Competitive Scholarships for MS Students

Competitive Scholarships are awarded by the various concentrations and programs within GSBS. It is up to the concentration/program to determine the amount and number of scholarships they will be awarding each year based on the funds available and other factors determined by each concentration/program. All admitted students are automatically considered for competitive scholarships, so no separate application forms or interviews are necessary. The GSBS office notifies scholarship winners at the time of admission to the university.

Criteria to be reviewed holistically include:

  • • Undergraduate GPA
  • • GRE
  • • Letters of Recommendation
  • • Essay
  • • Personal Interview (Optional)

Students must maintain full time status in the Fall and Spring semesters to maintain eligibility for the scholarship. If a student drops below full time status, they will lose their scholarship for the next semester. Students must also maintain satisfactory progress on their degree plan and remain in good standing. If a student goes onto academic probation, they will lose their scholarship for the next semester. During the semester of the forfeited scholarship, if a student has a semester GPA above a 3.0, the scholarship will be renewed.


Deadline: Varies by program/concentration

Award Amount: Determined by each program/concentration

No separate application is required. 

These scholarships are reviewed and approved by the GSBS Miscellaneous Scholarships Committee.
