As a means of assisting qualified students who are experiencing extreme hardship or who have exhausted all other funding sources, including student loans, the School of Business & Leadership (SBL) offers a limited number of Needs Grants, which are awarded at the discretion of the Financial Aid Committee. Students who wish to be considered for need-based assistance must:
- Be an active, full-time, degree-seeking student in the School of Business & Leadership.
- Submit the FAFSA.
- Submit the SBL Financial Aid Application, including a completed financial condition statement.
- Provide documentation indicating that they have sought other funding sources, including student loans.
Note: Non-U.S. citizens may be required to submit additional financial information to be eligible for consideration.
The Financial Aid Committee's decision may be influenced by other scholarships and the student's employment status. If awarded, students must reapply for this grant each academic year, if continued financial assistance is needed. Students who fall into probationary academic status will forfeit any SBL financial aid awards they may be receiving. Once out of probationary status, these students are welcome to reapply for SBL financial aid awards.
This application should only be completed after an applicant has been accepted to the School of Business & Leadership. If you complete the application prior to your acceptance decision, you will be required to resubmit the financial aid application once you have been accepted for admission to an SBL degree-seeking program.
This form is for master's—and doctoral—level students only. If you are an undergraduate student, please go to the College of Arts & Sciences website for undergraduate scholarship opportunities.
