At Ball State, 80 percent of our students are eligible for financial aid. The Department of Economics offers several scholarships to our students.

There are two scholarship opportunities:

  • All incoming freshmen are eligible for scholarship awards.
  • Our most hard-working and talented upper-class students may receive scholarships to help out.

Beyond departmental support, the university also offers scholarships and financial aid.
