Miller College Scholarship Application

In order to be eligible for a Miller College of Business Scholarship or Award, an applicant must:

  • Be enrolled as a full-time student at Ball State University
  • Be a Miller College of Business major
  • Attend the annual Miller College of Business Scholarship Banquet, which will be held each fall (Award recipients are guests of the Miller College of Business)
  • Complete the scholarship application and submit the form

Deadline for submission of all application materials is February 14, 2015.

Preference will be given to students admitted to the Miller College of Business (Seniors and Juniors). While there is no minimum GPA requirement for application, some scholarships have a GPA minimum.

Scholarships and awards are supported primarily by donations to the Ball State University Foundation. A small percentage of donors require that financial need be established for the award of the scholarship. This will require completion of the FAFSA form available in the Ball State University Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (LU 245). Most other awards may be made on the basis of scholastic achievement without regard to financial need. In order for the committee to get an accurate picture of your financial situation, please fill out the application fully.

All scholarships are awarded for a one-year period (two semesters), and an annual application for renewal is required; however, application does not guarantee receipt of an award. All applicants will be notified by mail at the end of June.
