Frequently Asked Questions
How many COB scholarships can I apply for?
You may apply for an unlimited number of COB scholarships. If a specific scholarship requires additional documentation (see description/requirements section) it is the responsibility of the student to submit the necessary documentation with their application.
Can I submit one application to be considered for multiple scholarships?
No. A separate application is required for each scholarship.
Can I use the same essay/letter of recommendation?
Although applications are not compared from year to year, it is recommended you submit an essay that is for that specific scholarship application.
Do I have to pay tuition before I find out if I received a COB Scholarship?
Yes. All students are responsible for their own financial obligations to the University. If you are awarded a COB Scholarship, the award will come through the Financial Aid Office – however, this will be well after fees are due.
When will I find out if I received a scholarship?
Only applicants who win a scholarship will be notified via email eight weeks following the closure of applications.
What are the amounts of the scholarships?
Scholarship amounts range between $200 -$2,000. The individual amount for an award will be determined by College of Business Scholarship Committee. Students who are selected to receive a scholarship will be notified of the amount upon receiving the award letter.
Can I qualify for a scholarship without a FAFSA on file with the financial aid office?
No, all applicants must have a current FAFSA on file with FAU's financial aid office in order to qualify for scholarships.
