MS Finance Scholarships and Funding

The Lundquist College of Business is committed to enrolling exceptional students dedicated to learning in our experiential-based model.

Financial assistance can come in the form of scholarships, loans, federal work-study and university fellowships. Upon application, candidates may be considered for merit-based scholarships. Scholarships are based on academic and professional qualifications and are not need-based. Financial aid comes from a variety of sources, including the Lundquist College of Business, federal government, and public and private sources.


Graduate Student Scholarships

Lundquist Admissions awards merit-based scholarships to incoming students who are fully admitted to the MSF program. No application is needed—decisions are made during the admissions process and are based on GMAT/GRE, GPA, and work experience. Award amount varies and will be communicated to students at the time of admission.

International Student Scholarships

Both need- and merit-based scholarships specifically for non-U.S. students are available through the UO Office of International Affairs.
