Welcome to the College of Business Scholarship application information page.

The application is a two-part process.
  • Part 1 – Completion of the online application
  • Part 2 – Email submission of required documentation 
Application Information
  • You will be asked a series of questions that will narrow the field of scholarships to those for which you may be eligible.  Please read the specific criteria for each scholarship carefully to determine whether or not you meet the requirements. 
  • After you have completed the scholarship application questionnaire, you will see a list of the scholarships to which you have applied. It is important that you print that list or keep it in some way as you will not be able to return to that screen. 
  • You will automatically be taken to the View scholarships with descriptions and eligibility requirements page where you will again be able to view the specific criteria for each scholarship
Email submission information

 Please send a SINGLE EMAIL to cobundergradprograms@jmu.edu with the following attachments:

  1. Copy of your unofficial transcript (high school if you are a rising freshman, JMU and/or community college if you are a rising upperclassman).  If your high school does not issue unofficial transcripts, please send a list of your high school courses and grades earned in each. 
  2. Personal statement of 400 words or less that addresses why you believe you are an excellent candidate for the scholarship(s).  Please only submit one statement, even if you are applying for multiple scholarships, touching on all of the different criteria. 
  3. Descriptive list of extracurricular activities and work experience, or current resume. 
  4. Faculty letter of reference (optional).

In the subject line of your email, put your full name (e.g. Heather Ann Simpson). 

Do NOT send multiple emails.  Your single email should contain all of your attachments.  Please be sure that each attachment is clearly titled with your name (e.g. Heather Ann Simpson Transcript).   

Scholarships available to freshmen will be posted April 16th, with a deadline of May 4th.

If you have questions about the scholarship process, please contact Molly Brown, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs, at brownmg@jmu.edu or (540) 568-1697.
