If you are applying for the Online MBA, Online MSBA, or only a Certificate program, you are not eligible for the Albers scholarship. The scholarship application must be completed and included with your initial program application. For applicants applying for a start date of Fall 2022 onward: if scholarship is awarded it will be awarded for 6 quarters (not including summer quarter).

To apply and be considered for a scholarship:
