Thanks to generous donors, scholarships are available to Collat business students at all levels and awarded on an annual basis. Most of these scholarships have specific academic requirements, and some have special conditions that must be met. In some cases, students must demonstrate financial need in order to qualify. Students are allowed to "stack" offers.


Application Deadline: February 1st.

Admitted students may begin applying for scholarships on September 1st for the following academic year. 

Undergraduates complete the general application through Blazer Scholarship Management and Resource Tool (BSMART) and will be automatically matched with scholarship criteria. Accounting and Finance specific scholarships are awarded outside of BSMART, through a separate application that will be posted in Canvas (beginning in October) to all accounting and finance students.


Please contact the program advisor with any questions.


A 4-year award program for incoming freshmen and transfer students that supports diversity in the Collat student body through recruitment of high achieving, under-represented students to include diverse racial, ethnic, economic, and geographic backgrounds.
