Scholarships for BBA Students

We encourage all students to apply for financial aid so they receive full consideration for scholarships from the University and from Ross Financial Aid. Entering and prospective students should visit the New Undergraduates page. Information for continuing students may be found here. Financial Aid to Ross Undergraduate students is provided through the University of Michigan’s main Financial Aid Office. They can be reached at or 734-763-6600.

The Ross Financial Aid Office offers a variety of undergraduate merit and need-based scholarships. These are also known as departmental scholarships (Ross Scholarships). Ross Scholarship funds come from both corporate and private donors. All BBA students who will be attending Ross are automatically considered for Ross scholarships. Majority of Ross scholarships do not require a separate application. Selections are made based on criteria set by the donor. Many of the Ross scholarships are continuing, provided students meet required GPA, enrollment, core values, and demonstrate need (if applicable). Continuing students who did not receive a Ross scholarship as an entering student are reconsidered each academic year. Scholarships do not extend to fifth-year seniors.

Although not required to be completed for Ross scholarship considerations, we find it helpful for admitted students to submit additional information through the “My Scholarship Profile” once a year, to help us know a little more about yourself. The My Scholarship Profile feature in the Campus Finances Section in Wolverine Access collects and securely stores your information, and makes it available to scholarship administrators across campus.

Entering and continuing students should complete and/or update "My Scholarship Profile" by March 15 to ensure full consideration for scholarships for the upcoming academic year.

Selected admitted entering students will be notified by email starting in April. Continuing students will be notified in June if their scholarship has been renewed, or if selected for a new scholarship.

Once in a while Ross Financial Aid will have a scholarship that requires application. Students will be emailed when and if these scholarships are available. Along with email notification, scholarships that require application will also be listed on this page.

To ensure full scholarship consideration:

  • APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID! Through the main Financial Aid Office!
  • Many Ross BBA scholarships are need-based. If eligible, complete a FAFSA each year. Do this early! FAFSA opens up October 1st each year. Even if you feel you do not have “need”, complete the FAFSA, you can always decline loan offers.
  • Complete/update My Scholarship Profile  through your Wolverine Access before March 15th each year, or earlier! Completing your scholarship profile will not guarantee you qualify for a specific scholarship, but it will ensure that you will be in a pool for consideration when additional information is needed for scholarship consideration.
  • Talk to your local Alumni Club
  • Look and apply for private scholarships! Start early! Below are some of the more popular free search tools with basic resources to assist you in your search (we do not recommend companies that offer scholarship services for a fee):
