Business Scholarships

Education is an investment in your future. We realize, however, that many students rely on financial assistance to help meet the difference between their resources and the cost of college. Thanks to the generous donations and support from families and friends of the Dahl School of Business, we are able to offer scholarships to assist with the financial needs of the student.
