McColl Scholarship Challenge


A Collegial Competition for Prospective Business School Students

The McColl School of Business is proud to offer a scholarship challenge event to prospective business school students. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with Queens faculty, current students, recent alums, and prospective classmates in an activity that is collaborative, competitive, educational, and fun. 


Top-level admitted Queens students will be notified of eligibility to participate. If you have not submitted your application to Queens, we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.  Participation in the scholarship challenge is optional, but strongly encouraged.

DECA and FBLA high school students with two or more semesters of membership and a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher are automatically invited to the McColl Scholarship Challenge. 

Multiple scholarships of varying values (renewable annually up to four years) will be awarded to students who demonstrate core competencies that align with our mission, vision, and values.

Cumulative Scholarship Opportunity

Students will be evaluated for admissions scholarships independently of their participation in the Scholarship Challenge.  DECA and FBLA high school students with more than two semesters of membership and 3.0 and higher GPAs are automatically eligible for up to $2,000 annual scholarship.  It is entirely possible to earn a McColl School Challenge scholarship, a DECA/FBLA membership scholarship, and additional merit scholarship. Conversely, students who have earned a Queens merit award are welcome to participate in the Scholarship Challenge for a chance to earn additional scholarship funds. Results are typically communicated within 2-3 weeks following the Scholarship Challenge event.
