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 2016-17 is now closed. The application for 2017-18 will be available in early March 2017.
