Continuing Students

Apply by February 15

Last year 40+ Raj Soin College of Business students were awarded more than $85,000 of scholarships from the University, the College and/or the Academic Departments.

The scholarship process requires an application, essay, list of activities, and a recommendation. A single scholarship application allows students to be considered for University, College, and Department scholarships.

Most scholarships are awarded based on merit. However, there are scholarships for students from under-represented populations, for non-traditional women, and for graduates of Fairborn High School.

Students who have been accepted into the Raj Soin College of Business qualify for Continuing Undergraduate Scholarships.

Apply each year by February 15 by completing and submitting the standard application form to RaiderConnect. The College Scholarship Committee will review all applications and award scholarships in the spring term for the following year. Scholarship recipients are also recognized at their academic department’s annual spring awards event.

A list of College of Business Scholarships for continuing students is available below. In addition, check each January with your Academic Department to see if any special, one-time scholarships are available for the upcoming academic year.
