Management Student Scholarships and Awards

The Faculty of Management is proud to recognize academic achievement by offering scholarships to assist students pursuing post-secondary education. There is also a broad range of scholarships offered by the U of L and external agencies.

Although academic proficiency is a requirement of all scholarships, there are many that focus on a student's other attributes, including athletic and extra-curricular involvement, community service, financial need and membership in specific organizations.

Some of these awards will be given automatically, but it is well worth your while to investigate all the possibilities and to apply where appropriate. Over $400,000 in funding is given out to Management students each year at the U of L. Make sure to find out what you qualify for and take advantage of this important avenue of support.
