Each year the Center for Retailing Studies awards scholarships to retailing students based on their academic achievement, leadership skills, and demonstrated interest to pursue professional careers in the industry. All students are encouraged to apply. Applications are due mid-spring and awards are presented at the annual Mays Business School awards banquet in May.

In 2016, over $55,000 in retailing scholarships were awarded to students via national level scholarships and competition awards through involvement in the National Retail Federation Foundation and the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund.
