Scholarships

Overview

Each September, E. J. Ourso College of Business students with a 3.0 or higher overall GPA will receive an email with a link to the scholarship application. Look for this message and pay close attention to the application deadline.  We award about 80 scholarships per academic year, most of which are $1,000 one-time awards.  Half of these require financial need as determined on the Federal Aid application.  Award winners are selected by a faculty committee and applicants are automatically considered for any scholarship for which they are eligible. Recipients are notified in February.

When applying, students will be asked to share their home state, and should prepare to answer questions about career interest, college activities, volunteer activities, and work experience. There will be an opportunity to explain any extenuating circumstances and/or financial need.  We recommend that students be as thorough as possible when completing the application – the committee is responsible for ensuring that applicants meet donor requirements; if questions are left blank, students cannot be considered for certain awards.

Scholarship recipients are expected to attend the E. J. Ourso College’s Spring Scholarship Reception in April.  Scholarship recipients and donors are recognized at the reception.

For more information on scholarships contact the Assistant Dean for the Office of Business Student Success Ashley R. Junek, at cxjunek@lsu.edu or 225-578-3211.
