Scholarships for business students
Did you know the Mike Ilitch School of Business awards roughly $500,000 in scholarships exclusively to business students every year? On average, more than 200 business students receive support from one or more of our 72 named scholarships.
We accept applications for private scholarships once per year and present the awards at the Annual Recognition and Awards Program. This year's event will be held on Thursday, August 25, 2016, at the Detroit Renaissance Center Marriott.
The scholarship application for 2017-18 is not yet available. The application form will be available Monday, March 6, 2017, with a deadline of Monday, April 17, 2017.
Other WSU resources
Ilitch School scholarships are offered in addition to the $350 million in need- and merit-based funding offered through Wayne State University's Office of Student Financial Aid and the Graduate School.
Wayne State students often qualify for awards from external organizations and we encourage you to pursue all opportunities.
