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.
