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

Scholarships for Current/Continuing Students:

Last year, the Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship (Jabs) awarded over $250,000 in scholarships to students who took the time to apply. All Jabs Business College 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 2022-2023 Scholarship Application period will be available November 1, 2021 through February 1, 2022.

Click here to view the Cat Scholarship portal and apply.

Many of the scholarships awarded by Jabs 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 2021-2022 is October 1 – December 1, 2020.


Some scholarships and graduate student support is in the works for our new MSIM program. Please stay tuned...

Scholarship winners will be notified by Late Spring 2021.

There are also scholarships available through the Bracken Center:

International Fellowships - In 2018-19, we awarded over $13,000 to students studying in 7 different countries. We encourage any student planning a business education experience abroad to apply for funding assistance through the Bracken Center.

Scholarships for Prospective Students:

Specialty scholarships for incoming freshmen students:

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. Need-based scholarships will not be awarded to students who have not completed the FAFSA application.
