Scholarships and Funding

Every year the Lundquist College of Business awards more than $2 million in scholarships and funding to students in our undergraduate and graduate programs.

Each program offers different funding options and scholarships to help offset the cost of tuition that is specifically tailored to meet the needs of its students.


Prospective Students

Prospective undergraduate students and students newly admitted to the University of Oregon can apply for general university scholarships through the UO Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. Students can also explore and discuss financing options with a counselor in the financial aid office, as well as get questions answered about how to apply for aid, the cost of attendance, and more.

Students also become eligible to apply for additional scholarships administered by the Lundquist College of Business the February before their sophomore year (direct admits only) or junior year (standard admission).

Current Students

Current business administration and accounting majors are also invited to apply for additional scholarships. All Lundquist majors can apply for the Lundquist College of Business scholarships by completing one application to be considered for all available scholarships. Accounting majors have access to a second pool of scholarships through the college's School of Accounting and a second application. Typically, scholarships are awarded to students who will be admitted to the full major by the next fall term. Scholarship awards typically range between $2,000 and $6,000, depending upon available funding.

Note: College-administered scholarships are only available to currently enrolled students and are not available to students newly admitted to the University of Oregon.

Direct-admit students become eligible to apply for the general Lundquist College of Business scholarships for their sophomore, junior, and senior years.

Students can also explore and discuss financial aid options with the UO Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.

MBA, MS in Sports Product Management, and MS Finance

MBA, MS in Sports Product Management (SPM), and MS Finance (MSF) candidates are considered for merit-based scholarships from the college upon application. No separate scholarship application is needed. In addition, many MBA, SPM, and MSF students fund their education through Graduate Employee (GE) positions, which carry a tuition waiver and a paid stipend. 

Financial aid can also come from a variety of sources including federal government and public and private sources, loans, federal work-study, and university fellowships. Both need- and merit-based scholarships are also specifically available for non-U.S. students.

Master of Accounting

Master of Accounting students are eligible for scholarships awarded through the UO School of Accounting. MAcc students apply via the same process as undergraduate accounting majors and must apply for scholarships separately from the MAcc admission process. In addition, several graduate employee (GE) positions, which include a full tuition waiver and stipend, are awarded to MAcc students each year.

Executive MBA

Our Portland-based Oregon Executive MBA program awards scholarships at time of admission, including a $10,000 diversity, equity, and inclusion scholarship. In addition, travel scholarships are available for those attending from more than 50 miles away. Executive MBA students can also apply for federal, unsubsidized student loans.
