Darla Moore School of Business

Undergraduate Scholarships and Financial Awards

Last academic year, more than 500 Moore School undergraduate students received approximately $1.1 million in donor-funded scholarships.

Moore School general scholarships are competitive and limited. The number and amount of scholarships awarded vary and are subject to available funds. 

Application Process for Undergraduate Students

To apply for any Moore School scholarship, you need to complete an online application known as the Common Scholarship Application. Students who complete and submit the Common Scholarship Application are automatically considered for all scholarships for which they meet the scholarship criteria. This means that you only need to fill out and submit one application to apply for all available scholarships.

Please note that you must fill out the application in its entirety to be considered for scholarships. Thoroughly completing the application, including the optional questions, may broaden the scholarships for which you are considered since those questions help identify applicants who meet specific criteria.

Deadlines and Application Links

Applications open in January at the beginning of the spring term. There are two applications with different deadlines: one for returning students and one for new or transfer students. Late submissions will not be accepted.

The deadline to apply for 2021-22 scholarships as a returning Moore School student is March 1, 2021. Fill out the application now.

The deadline to apply for 2021-22 scholarships as an incoming freshman or transfer student is May 1, 2021. Fill out the application now.

COVID-19 Relief Fund – Summer 2021 Term

Moore School students taking UofSC courses during the summer 2021 semester may apply for the Moore School COVID-19 Relief Scholarship Fund. Final deadline to apply is Wednesday, March 31.

To apply for a COVID-Relief scholarship for summer 2021, please complete the online application, which requires an essay explaining the COVID-19 hardship that you are faced with, an explanation of the situation that has impacted you and the financial need this situation has created for you (which may include the difficulty to pay tuition, fees, living expenses – including basic necessities like food and housing).

Please note that the Moore School Common Scholarship Application for the 2021-22 academic year is open and must be completed and submitted by the published deadlines (March 1 for returning students and May 1 for incoming students). This is a separate application process, so be sure to complete this application if you want to be considered for any scholarships for the academic year 2021-22 (fall and spring semesters).

Email if you have any questions.

General Scholarship Guidelines

General scholarship recipient notifications will be sent via email and will include the amount and name of the scholarship award. Scholarship awards for 2021-2022 will be announced on or around June 1, 2021.

Scholarships do not automatically renew. Current recipients of Darla Moore School of Business general scholarships (2020-2021 academic year) must reapply to be considered for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

Recipients who do not enroll, or who transfer from the Moore School to another college, forfeit any previously awarded Moore School scholarships. Other scholarships may be available through the UofSC's Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
