Empower the Jones Graduate School of Business to recruit top students.

As we strive to be one of the top business schools in the country, we rely heavily on investments from our alumni and friends to ensure that we are able to attract the best and brightest students.  Scholarships continue to serve as one of our strongest recruitment tools and allow us the opportunity to deliver a first-class educational experience to our students. 

The formula is a simple one: as dollars dedicated to financial aid increase, so does the quality of the student body.  Term and current scholarship support for graduate programs provide annual funding to empower The Jones Graduate School of Business to recruit graduate students and ensures that the school continues to grow in reputation and national rankings.  Both endowed and current scholarships may be named in honor of an esteemed colleague, one's family or a business/organization.
