Each academic year, COBA and the Griggs Center award scholarships up to $1,500 to students who are studying entrepreneurship and philanthropy and/or involved in the Griggs Center’s student programs.
How are awards determined?
The following criteria will be considered in determining awards:
- Interest in entrepreneurship
- Financial need (including other scholarship awards received)
- Academic performance
- Pursuit of the E&P concentration
- Involvement in Griggs Center student programs (e.g., Springboard, CEO, Entrepreneur Speaker Series, Wildcat Ventures)
A committee of faculty and staff members reviews all applications to make initial recommendations. The appropriate university officials then approve all final scholarship awards.
When is a decision made? When will I receive the scholarship?
Scholarship awards are determined in the spring semester of each year. Those awards will be applied equally in the following academic year. For example, if you are awarded a $1,000 scholarship in the spring of 2014, you will receive $500 in each of the fall 2014 and spring 2015 semesters.
All awards are made on a one-time basis. For example, if a sophomore is awarded a scholarship he or she is only entitled to the award for one year. He or she may reapply the following year but is not guaranteed to receive the scholarship again.
How can I apply? When is the deadline?
If you are interested in the E&P scholarship, you will need to fill out a brief online application that will be available on December 2nd.
We are asking for all applications to be submitted no later than Friday, February 7th by 5:00 pm.

Yes, COBA offers scholarships to business majors and ACU offers a variety of other scholarships to qualified students. Visit the COBA scholarships page for more information on its scholarship awards and process. Visit ACU’s scholarships website for a full list of scholarships available at ACU.
