Carthage awards one full-tuition and two $20,000 per year Business Scholarships each year to incoming students. These scholarships are awarded to students who demonstrate ability in business, and are renewable for four years.
The Business Scholarship deadline has passed for fall 2020 freshmen. Join our mailing list to receive more information about Carthage’s competitive scholarships if you are a freshman entering in fall 2021 or later.
With a first-class learning center, expert faculty, and a prime location in the heart of the Milwaukee-Chicago business corridor, Carthage offers students an unequaled experience in learning business principles. Students choose a specific major in business while studying a common foundation in accounting, economics, functional business areas, and management.
The annual Business Scholarship Competition takes place in February. If selected to compete, candidates will be invited to the on-campus competition where they will take a comprehensive examination, have candid discussions with Carthage business students, and hear alumni share experiences and insights regarding their time as a Carthage business student.
How to Apply
Candidates interested in applying for a business scholarship must complete the following no later than December 3:
- Submit an application for admission to Carthage and supporting materials (high school transcripts and ACT/SAT report).
