Heider College of Business Scholarships

Creating access and opportunity for the leaders of tomorrow.

Business students talking at a table.

It all starts with scholarships

When you support scholarships, you help our students manage costs and alleviate debt load. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

You help us shape a new generation of service-minded business leaders ready to face the future and improve our world. 

Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it. Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges. 

The Heider College of Business is connected to a network of Fortune 500 companies in Omaha and beyond. Scholarships empower our students to tap into this network and take up the torch in the world of business.

Student Jada Glover

Changing someone's life

“You are supporting so many opportunities, and you are inspiring us to make the most of every one of them. I work as a student caller with the Creighton Phonathon, and I will tell you what I tell people over the phone — ‘When you make a gift to Creighton, you might not know whose life you’re changing, but you are changing someone’s life.’”

— Jada Glover, Heider College of Business

Bailey Wood

Rooted in Jesuit values

“When I was looking for a master's program in business administration, I wasn't looking for just a piece-of-paper degree that got me the next promotion. I was looking for an education that changed my perspective. That's what I've found at Creighton. Because of your generosity, more students like me can receive an education rooted in Jesuit values.”

— Bailey Wood, Graduate School

Student Christian Carrillo

THE BEST VERSION OF MYSELF

“When you first come to Creighton, you notice it right away — the Jesuit values, a passion to teach and learn, the fact that people clearly care about each other. Creighton and the Heider College of Business have inspired me to be the best version of myself. Both have taught me that being a leader means being a positive force in the world.”

— Christian Carrillo, Heider College of Business
