Emory College offers scholarships based on academic merit to incoming first-year students as part of the Emory Scholars Program. All merit scholarships awarded to incoming freshmen continue once the student matriculates into the BBA program.
A scholarship opportunity for students with a strong interest in business was implemented in the Fall of 2007. The Goizueta Scholars Award supports four years of undergraduate study, including study-abroad options, and ranges from one-half of tuition to full tuition and fees.
Interested students should have superior academic credentials and a demonstrated interest in business as evidenced by engagement in entrepreneurial activities, participation in internships, membership in business clubs, and/or involvement in business-related conferences, competitions, and similar offerings. Leadership and community service are also important components in the selection process, and candidates who bring diverse perspectives and backgrounds are of special interest.
Goizueta Scholars have guaranteed admission to the BBA Program and priority access to business classes. In the freshman and sophomore years, these students also have the opportunity to enroll in special business scholar seminars, to participate in an extensive array of leadership and professional activities, and to interact with some of the most admired business executives in the world. Scholars will be personally advised by the Dean of the BBA program and given access to a wide variety of ongoing Goizueta resources, including internships, mentoring, and other career services.
In 1990, a scholarship fund exclusively for BBA students was established through the generosity of NationsBank. Bank of America has decided to continue to fund this scholarship. The award is based primarily on academic performance in the BBA Program as well as on financial need.
The award is given in memory of Emory College Alumnus Daniel DeSevo to a BBA student from New York, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania who demonstrates outstanding academic merit and personal leadership and is shown to have financial need.
The Lynn H. Johnston Scholarship is awarded to an entering BBA student who is a graduate of Oxford College of Emory University. It is named in honor of Mr. Johnston 50Ox/52BBA, retired chairman of the Life Insurance Company of Georgia.
The Strickland Scholarship was established in 1995 in honor of the former chairman of Emory University's Board of Trustees and the former chairman of SunTrust Banks. It will be awarded to a BBA student who has demonstrated academic achievement, financial need, and personal and scholastic merit.
This scholarship has been endowed in honor of Ronald Frank, renowned marketing scholar and past dean of the Goizueta Business School. It is awarded to a graduating senior who has selected Marketing as an area depth. Selection is based on overall GPA, grades in marketing coursework, and outside activities that relate to the field of marketing.
