Williams College of Business Graduate Scholarships

At the Williams College of Business (WCB) at Xavier University, we are invested in the education of our students. We offer academic scholarships to recognize students for their achievements, and to make higher education accessible to a diverse population. Our WCB graduate scholarships align with Xavier’s mission to provide an inclusive environment of open and free inquiry, as we prepare students for a world that is increasingly diverse, complex and interdependent. Driven by our commitment to educating the whole person, promoting the common good and serving others, the WCB community challenges and supports all our members as we cultivate lives of reflection, compassion and informed action. Executive MBA students, while not eligible for the scholarships listed on this page, should visit for scholarships for EMBA resources.

Women in Business Scholarship (25% tuition discount per semester)

Women lead and manage in business, making up more than half of today’s US workforce. Yet challenges remain: as of December 2022, only 32% of S&P 500 companies’ board seats are held by women, and just 7.4% of the companies' CEOs are women.

The Women in Business Scholarship program particularly invests in women who pursue graduate business studies as they break down barriers from the classroom to the C-Suite.
