Dean’s Scholarships

Students applying to the MBA program are automatically considered for the Dean’s Scholarships at the time of admission. Applicants must exhibit exceptionally strong qualifications (see our selection criteria for more information). Neither PharmD/MBA students nor Oregon Public University employees participating in the Tuition Reduction Program are eligible for participation in the Dean’s Scholarship programs.

Beaver for Life Scholarships (OSU Alumni)

At Oregon State’s College of Business, being a Beaver has its perks. As an OSU alum, you are eligible to receive a scholarship toward tuition. No additional application is required to be considered for the Beaver for Life Scholarship. Neither PharmD/MBA students nor Oregon Public University employees participating in the Tuition Reduction Program are eligible for participation in the Beaver for Life Scholarship program.

Named Scholarship and Fellowships

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to offer additional financial support in the form of named scholarships and fellowships. Named scholarships and fellowships have additional application requirements and terms and conditions vary. To be considered eligible for one of our named scholarships and fellowships, a student must be newly admitted to Oregon State University and the College of Business as a graduate student in the MBA program for the upcoming academic year.

 The Named Scholarship Application is open from September 1-June 30, and awarded to newly admitted students starting in the upcoming academic year. Primary consideration for named scholarships/fellowships will be given to those who submit both their application for admission and scholarship application no later than February 1 (prior to the upcoming fall term). Students applying between February 2 and June 30 will be considered for named scholarships/fellowships only if funding is still available. Exceptions may apply.

The Named Scholarship Application requires a 250-word essay for each scholarship/fellowship for which you wish to be considered.

Keith Katko

I understood the value of an MBA as a professional growth opportunity for enhancing my future career opportunities. The time and money needed to earn the degree, however, were a little harder to commit. I wanted a larger school with name recognition. I made some preliminary cost comparisons amongst all the MBA players in the metro area and found the OSU MBA in Portland to be the best value.
