Carthage awards two full-tuition 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.
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 Business Scholarship Competition takes place virtually/online on Friday, February 4, 2022. If selected to compete, candidates will be invited to the virtual/online 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).
- Submit the Business Scholarships Competition Application, available in October. (The Business Scholarships Competition has passed for fall 2022 freshmen. If you are a freshman entering in fall 2023 or later, join our mailing list to receive more information about Carthage’s competitive scholarships.)
- Submit a one-page essay: Explain why you are interested in a career in business. (This is part of the online scholarship application.)
To apply for a business scholarship, candidates must intend to major in accounting, economics, finance, international political economy, management, or marketing. (A double major in another subject area is acceptable and can be completed in four years.)
The business faculty and the Office of Admissions will review your application and high school grades. Qualified applicants will be notified in early January. Successful candidates and their families will be invited to the Business Scholarship Competition.
The Business Scholarships may incorporate all Carthage assistance. Scholarships and grants may be combined with federal and state grants, not to exceed full tuition.
