ScholarshipsThe PSU School of Business Administration awards over $200,000 in scholarships every year to undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate students across all disciplines. Starting with the online application opening in October, and culminating in the Scholarships Night event in May, the process spans eight months and involves students, faculty, donors and administrators.

The key to getting a scholarship: early preparation. The application is due the February 1st before the fall term when scholarships are awarded. With the application open and accessible for four months it’s never too early to start! 

How to Apply

All SBA scholarships are administered through PSU's online application process unless otherwise noted or you are notified within a specific program such as Pathways. Applications will open in mid-October.

If you have studied the information and have questions that you feel are not addressed in the application process, you may contact our scholarship coordinator at

Applicants fill out one application, which will determine from all possible SBA scholarships which ones are applicable to you. It is not possible to apply for specific scholarships individually. During the review process following the February deadline, a committee of faculty members will review all applications for each scholarship and determine the winner among the top candidates.

Who Can Apply

The School of Business Administration invites all undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate students who are admitted or will be admitted to the SBA by fall term to apply for scholarships for the following academic year.

Starting Your Application

  1. Visit the scholarship website. This will connect you to Scholar X.
  2. Log in and register as a first-time user. Begin filling out either the PSU Undergraduate Application or the PSU Graduate Scholarship Application. Note that certain scholarships for certain majors may have specific essay questions. You must fill out those specific essay questions to be considered for those scholarships.
  3. Saving and returning. It is important that you fill out the relevant sections of the application to be eligible for any scholarships offered through the University, as well as any scholarships offered through the School of Business. It may seem a lengthy process, but you can stop and come back later to finish your application without losing any of your work at any time. However, once you hit the submit button, your application has been sent and cannot be revised.

When You Will Be Notified of Award

Please note that new scholarships may be added and scholarships are subject to change. Most SBA scholarships are awarded in early April following the February deadline, although a few scholarships are offered on a different timetable. Check back periodically for updates.
