Each year, the College of Business (COB) awards approximately 200 scholarships totaling nearly $200,000 to current undergraduate and graduate students pursuing business related degrees. While many of these scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic standing, others are determined at least in part by financial need, community service, leadership, major, membership in student organizations, etc. An annual awards banquet is held in the fall each year, honoring both scholarship recipients and the generous donors that have established scholarships.
COB scholarships have been established by successful alumni, present and former faculty, professional organizations and businesses that recruit regularly on the Missouri State campus. The generosity of these groups and individuals allows many COB students to commit more time to their studies and student organizations, thus increasing their marketability upon graduation. In many cases, receiving a scholarship or award leads to greater opportunities for securing internships or full-time positions following graduation. If you are interested creating a scholarship or award, please contact the Missouri State University Foundation, (417) 836-4143.
All newly admitted high school and transfer students, and current undergraduate and graduate students interested in applying for COB scholarships must complete and submit the University General and Departmental Scholarship Application online. The deadline to apply for 2013-2014 scholarships is March 1, 2013. For more information on the University scholarship process and outside scholarships see the Financial Aid website.
