Image of MoneyThank you for your interest in the Montana State University Jake Jabs College of Business & Entrepreneurship (JJCBE) Scholarship program!

Scholarships for Current/Continuing Students:

Last year, the Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship (JJCBE) awarded almost $200,000 in Scholarships to students who took the time to apply. All JJCBE students planning to enroll full-time next academic year, including Accounting graduate students, are eligible to apply. Why would you pass up a chance at “free money” to finance your education?

The 2017-2018 Scholarship Application period is now over. Please check in the fall for new timelines.

Many of the scholarships awarded by JJCBE are need-based. To be eligible for these scholarships, students MUST also complete the FAFSA student aid application so that the MSU financial aid office can determine your financial need. Need-based scholarships will not be awarded to students who have not completed the FAFSA application.

New early FAFSA priority filing period for 2017-2018 is October 1 – December 1, 2016.

Scholarship winners were notified by May 2017.

There are also scholarships available through the Bracken Center:

Bracken Washington D.C. Internship - Students work for a semester as an intern with one of our Montana Senators. One scholarship is available per year, in Washington D.C. for a semester.

Bracken International Fellowships - Scholarships for international activities are available to College of Business students. We typically award several scholarships of up to $1,500 each for international activity to occur during Academic Year 2015-2016.

Eligibility for need-based scholarships is determined by the MSU Financial Aid Office, consequently students who wish to be considered for need-based scholarships MUST complete the FAFSA student aid application.
