Scholarships for BBA Students

The Ross School of Business offers a variety of undergraduate merit and need-based scholarships. Scholarship funds come from both corporate and private donors.  The majority of scholarships are offered to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

All entering Ross BBA sophomores are considered for scholarships. No application is required.  Continuing students who did not receive a Ross scholarship as an entering sophomore are re-considered each academic year.  If selected, students will be notified in late July to mid-August.  

Many of the scholarships are continuing, provided students meet required GPA, enrollment, core values and demonstrate need (if applicable).  Scholarships are paid equally split between the fall and winter terms with no exceptions.  Students must be enrolled full-time to retain the scholarship.  An exception to enrollment may be made in the final term leading to graduation.

The Ross Financial Aid office also posts various specific scholarship opportunities throughout the year.  Target email notifications will be sent to students when scholarship opportunities are available.

To ensure full scholarship consideration:

  • Many Ross BBA scholarships are need-based.  Ross BBA students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Students Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov to be considered for all scholarships.
  • My Scholarship Profile is a form on Wolverine Access where you can submit information about yourself to be used in identifying your eligibility for certain university scholarships.  Completing your scholarship profile will not guarantee you qualify for a specific scholarship, but it ensures that you will be in a pool for consideration when additional information is needed for scholarship consideration.
  • BBA students are encouraged to review the UM scholarship/fellowship opportunities as well as the private scholarship link, which includes a listing of free web-based scholarship search service.
