Scholarship - Finance
The following list of scholarships was created by donations from individuals and organizations for students of the College of Business (COB). The FAU Foundation and the Dean's Office administer the scholarships once per year at the start of the Fall Semester. Some scholarships are made from the interest accrued on endowed funds. The scholarships may be expendable or endowments. Therefore, each scholarship fund is reviewed and awarded on a case by case basis. To apply, select the red application button to the right. Awards to scholarship recipients are received in writing approximately one month after the application window closes. The closing date for all scholarship applications in the College of Business is October 1, 2016.

The Ultra Learning Scholarship Fund for Finance Majors in 2016
The Ultra Learning Scholarship Fund offers financial support for Finance majors at FAU who qualify for senior status (completed at least 90 credit hours) and have achieved excellent performance, and are working their way through college. The funding may enable qualified students to rely less on outside work so that they can expedite the completion of their degree.
Deadline for Applications is February 10, 2016
Funding: Scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $5,000 may be available
Criteria: The assessment of performance considers grades, number of business and finance courses that have already been taken at FAU toward the completion of the degree, and the perceived rigor of these courses that have been completed. A minimum 3.7 GPA is required for all courses taken at FAU, and for all business courses taken at FAU, and for all Finance courses taken at FAU.
Applicants must have worked for at least 15 hours per week on average over the period from August 1, 2015 through December 31, 2015 (any recipient of the scholarship offer will need to verify their employment with a W-2 form or by other means). For this reason, the information disclosed within your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) file may be considered. Students must also meet criteria specified by FAU who apply for financial aid. Specifically, they must have a valid social security number, must not be in default on a student loan, and must not be convicted of an illegal drug offense.
