School of Business and Economics Impact Scholarship

Curriculum: Students must be enrolled in Accounting, Economics, Engineering Management, Finance, Management, Management Information Systems, or Marketing to qualify for the scholarship.
Scholarship overview: This scholarship program is open to first-year students enrolling in their first fall semester at Michigan Technological University. As a part of the selection process, students will be invited to attend a scholarship event on campus. Approximately 30 finalists will be invited to campus in February where they will participate in group processing activities, faculty evaluations, and a writing exercise. More importantly, this visit is designed for students to meet university administrators, faculty, and students to learn more about the business programs available at Michigan Tech.
Renewal Criteria: Scholarship recipients must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.50 at the end of each spring semester. Continuous full-time undergraduate enrollment (12 credits or more) and acceptable social behavior must also be maintained. Recipients are required to live in University housing for the first two academic years--four academic semesters (not including summers), to maintain this scholarship. Students graduating from high schools within Houghton, Keweenaw, and Baraga counties (and have commuter status) are exempt from the on-campus living requirement. Students are eligible for the award for a maximum of eight semesters of undergraduate study.
