Scholarshipsfor graduate students

Graduate students in the Spears School of Business do have opportunities to be considered for scholarships. In many cases, programs request students complete a universal scholarship application beginning mid-February each cycle; with application link notices emailed directly to students of participating programs with funding available. While variation by program exists, the primary end for the graduate scholarship application cycle is mid-May. Award announcements occur over the summer months. Traditional scholarships are awarded for the fall and spring semesters and are often equally divided between terms. A student’s failure to maintain scholarship criteria results in the loss of the scholarship(s) and re-application for the following year is required for future consideration. Any program offering a one-time high-GMAT/GRE scholarship to working professionals enrolled online or at OSU-Tulsa, automatically considers the application for admission as the scholarship application.
