Scholarships & Financial Aid
Your business education doesn’t have to come with a high price tag.
Kelley alumni give back. Their generous contributions, along with those of different corporations and foundations, allow us to proudly offer more than 130 scholarship opportunities to current Kelley students and students interested in business.
Note that our scholarships are competitive, modest, and in most cases, nonrenewable.
To maximize your funding options, students should also apply for financial aid through Student Central on Union. They can help you determine your eligibility for grants, loans, employment opportunities, and other need-based scholarships.
Additional Kelley scholarship opportunities
A few Kelley scholarships utilize unique applications. When available, information about these funding opportunities will be posted on the announcements of the events calendar.
Eligibility and notification of scholarship awards
Eligibility varies for each scholarship. Criteria may include GPA, major, residency, financial need, or other factors. While most scholarships require at least 3.3 GPA, others do not. Don't assume that you’ll receive a scholarship by attaining a certain GPA. Similarly, don’t count yourself out for a scholarship if you haven’t achieved a certain GPA.
We begin selecting scholarship recipients during the late spring and continue throughout the summer months. The vast majority of our general awards are finalized each year before the fall semester begins.
While the scholarship committee attempts to award most scholarships between May and the beginning of the fall term, scholarships may be awarded throughout the academic year as funds become available from various donors.
Please note that scholarship selection is an ongoing process.
We cannot inform you of your application status. Applicants remain under consideration until all awards have been made. You will be notified if you have received an award. Students not selected to receive funding are not notified.
