Undergraduate Scholarships

Sorry, the application window for this year has closed. Check back in Spring 2024, when next year's applications will open.

Generous donors have established scholarship funds for students in our BME program. Grants from $100-1500 are awarded each year to provide enhanced learning opportunities for current BME students. See below for more information and to apply. This is a common application, and students will be considered for all eligible awards. Preference goes to students who have not received one of the awards below. Students transferring into BME and HRD for their upcoming academic year are also eligible.

Tinsley Grant

In 2013, the Gary Tinsley Memorial Scholarship fund was created to honor the memory of Gary Tinsley, a Golden Gopher linebacker and Business and Marketing Education (BME) student, who passed away due to an enlarged heart a few weeks before he was to graduate.

Stockamp Scholarship

This fund was established with a bequest from Dorothy M. Stockamp (B.S. '53) who passed away in 2021. Born in Buhl, MN, Dorothy studied business education at the University of Minnesota. In Dorothy’s own words, her greatest achievement was being a teacher for 38 years and “loving every minute of it.” She had her first teaching job in Pine City, where she met her future husband Raymond Stockamp. They settled in Sandstone in 1959, where Ray set up his TV and electronics business. Dorothy taught mostly business classes at Askov High School from 1960 until 1987, and then moved to the newly-built Sandstone High School. She was very passionate about her work and bringing the best out in her students, and is frequently acknowledged by former students as a well-loved, respected, and inspirational teacher.

Warren and Marian Meyer Endowment in Marketing Education

The motivation for Warren and Marion Meyer in establishing the fund is to recognize the years Warren worked for the department of vocational and technical education, which was later changed to the department of work, community and family education in CEHD. Warren taught classes, advised students and provided leadership to the state and nation in marketing education. Both he and Marion were important parts of the lives of the students they touched.


To be considered for these scholarships, you must be an undergraduate student enrolled full time in the B.S. in Business and Marketing Education or B.S. in Human Resource Development in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development at the University of Minnesota.

Awards are based on the following criteria:

  • Enrollment status: these awards recognize and praise excellent students enrolled in the Business Marketing Education B.S. program within the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy and Development. These students ideally had great academic performances.
  • Indication of financial need: in addition to academic status, we would like to make this award available to students who mostly need this funding to support their B.S. in BME or HRD.
  • Two references and a short paragraph explaining why the applicant selected these references: this request provides an opportunity for students to and discuss their aspirations and status with their course professors, instructors, and advisors.
  • Intended utilization of funds to enhance program study experience, a study-abroad experience, or supporting work in a current unpaid internship.


Thank you for your interest. Because these scholarships have the same selection criteria, you only need to complete and submit the form once to apply for both awards.
