Currently the McCombs School is only able to provide scholarship packages to 2% of incoming freshmen. We have set a goal to establish a community of scholars built on a tiered “McCombs Scholars” program. Over the long-term, this ambitious initiative seeks to equip the McCombs School with 375 total scholarships (over 90 per class)—enough to ensure that the very brightest young minds in business have every reason to call the McCombs School home.
