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 incoming BBA students who will be attending at Ross are considered for scholarships. No separate scholarship application is required. Selections are made based on criteria set by the donor. Many of our scholarships require need, so we encourage students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Scholarship decisions are made in mid-August to early September, and all selected students are notified via email. There are no full or half tuition scholarships. Ross scholarships average around $5,000 and are very competitive. Since Ross scholarships are awarded in August and September, we advise all students and families to make their decision to attend Ross without considering scholarship aid.

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.

Continuing students who did not receive a Ross scholarship as an entering student are re-considered each academic year. Scholarships do not extend to fifth-year seniors in a dual degree program.  

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 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 Scholarships at U-M: 5 Important Steps to Make Sure You're Considered. The private scholarship link on this page includes a listing of free web-based scholarship search services.
