COB students with application questions should direct them solely to the staff in the COB Dean's office at 713-221-8017 or via email to


The Marilyn Davies College of Business Scholarships for 2024-25 will be open on January 5th through May 31st, 2024. Applications will be reviewed by the scholarship committee in June 2024, and decisions will be communicated in July 2024. To complete and submit your application, student will fill out UHD Marilyn Davies College of Business 2024-25 Scholarship Online Application. Students will need to log in using UHD network username and password.






Many scholarship criteria require that students demonstrate financial need. MDCOB students are strongly encouraged to complete a FAFSA in addition to the scholarship application in order to demonstrate financial need. U.S. citizens and permanent residents can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at

Students who are classified as a Texas Resident but cannot apply for federal financial aid using the FAFSA are encouraged to complete the Texas Application for State Financial Aid (TASFA) at

Most foreign students are not eligible for federal or state financial aid. To be considered for institutional financial aid, the student must complete the International Student Financial Aid Application. For scholarship awarding purposes, the information in this form will help the committee review a student’s demonstrated financial need in the case of need-based scholarships.

Learn more about each of these on UHD’s Financial Aid Basics.




The application only needs to be submitted once per academic year (Fall/Spring/Summer). Your cumulative GPA, declared major(s), attempted/passed hours, and financial aid information is automatically updated for you throughout the academic year. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you enter your gatormail address correctly in the application, as this is the unique identifier we will use to gather your student data.


Scholarships are awarded to students in every major and every classification and are usually awarded based on merit or financial need, or a combination of both. International students are encouraged to apply as well. We recommend you review our Available Scholarships along with the corresponding criteria before you apply. Once you submit an application, you will be considered for EVERY scholarship for which you qualify.

Items you need to prepare ahead of time to upload to your application (preferably in PDF format):

  • Personal statement (500 words or less) of "why should you be considered for a scholarship?"
  • Developing Your Personal Statement 
  • Completed Program Guide for your primary major.
  • download the Degree Worksheet (fillable pdf)
  • for the classes you have already completed, enter the grade received
  • for the classes you have yet to complete, enter the term in which you plan to take the course (this is not binding - we want to have an idea of your intended progress to degree)
  • for graduate students, this is the Sequence Guide provided by your advisor. Email if you need another copy.

Most scholarships are awarded in May for the upcoming academic year, but the Committee continues to award scholarships throughout the year as long as there are funds available or new scholarships established. Awards are applied directly to the recipient’s student account by the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
