Undergraduate Scholarships & Awards

Thanks to the generous support of alumni donors, the Economics Department recognizes the many academic and extracurricular accomplishments of undergraduate students, within the economics major, with scholarships and awards that are based on set criteria.

Spring 2024 undergraduate scholarship applications are currently being reviewed by the committee. 

General Application Information: Read the eligibility and application information for each scholarship carefully. A complete set of materials is required for the application. Students are encouraged to submit well-written and clear applications and (where required) original essays. All materials should accurately represent stated experiences and records, and the student code applies to all submitted materials. Use of the writing/career centers and other resources is appropriate and encouraged.

Selection: Applications are reviewed by a selection committee made up of the faculty and staff of the Economics Department which recommends awardees to the Department Head. Only complete applications received by the due date are considered. Nominees may be asked to provide additional information or verification of accomplishments at the request of the committee. The Selection Committee determines the number of scholarships awarded each year. All applicants will be notified of the outcome.

Recipients: Students receiving awards are recognized on the Department’s website and at the Scholarships & Awards Brunch held in May. A one-time monetary payment is dispersed through student accounts.
