Miller Mentors

About Miller Scholars

In the spirit of Wallace T. Miller Jr. (’63), the Miller Scholars Program honors and supports the highest-caliber students enrolling in the Miller College of Business.  Since 2008, the Miller Scholars program has offered students powerful and vibrant experience that’s second to none. 

Each year, the Miller College selects ten high-caliber students who exemplify strong academic drive, professionalism, motivation, leadership, and ethical and moral character to be Miller Scholars.  In addition to taking specially designed honors courses, Miller Scholars receive a full-tuition scholarship for four years, financially supported study abroad experiences, and a laptop computer. 

The program supplements classroom learning with professional development opportunities and, networking and social events. While excelling in the classroom, these students are encouraged to seek leadership positions outside the classroom.  These positions often include diverse business, university, service and community organizations.
