The $1,500 one-time stipend is awarded to an undergraduate scholarship recipient in the Jones College of Business.

This scholarship was established to recognize outstanding full-time students enrolled in the Jones College who have achieved and maintain positive academic records — including a minimum GPA or 3.5 on all completed coursework — and demonstrated financial need.

“This new program will allow me to obtain a Master of Science in Information Systems degree within five years instead of gaining a master’s degree after six. I am very excited for what my future holds now that I will be able to participate in this extraordinary program.”
