Need-Based Business Scholarships

Each year, Goshen College gives approximately 20 students a scholarship honoring Erie and Orlyss Sauder. In recognition of their interest in higher education for careers in business, Erie and Orlyss established these scholarships for students majoring in accounting, or business.


The Sauder Scholarships are available to students intending to major in one of the Business Department’s majors. The grants are based on demonstrated need and priority is given to students with a 3.0 or above grade point average. Each year, approximately five awards will be given to each of four classes of students: first year, sophomore, junior, and senior.


No separate application is required for these scholarships. New students must complete an application for admission to Goshen College and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Students with demonstrated need and an expressed interest to major in one of the business majors will be automatically considered for this award.
