Refer a Student to Pepperdine

Give a Scholarship to a Friend

As part of our continued commitment to attracting high caliber business students to the Graziadio School, we are offering a scholarship to new students referred by Pepperdine alumni, students, faculty, and staff. We believe that current and former members of our community are uniquely positioned to identify driven, values-based, academically focused candidates who will enhance our outstanding student community and alumni network.

In celebration of Pepperdine Graziadio's 50th anniversary, we are increasing our referral scholarship from $2,500 to $5,000 for the 2019 spring and summer terms* (standard referral scholarship requirements apply). Upon acceptance, students referred by alumni, students, faculty, or staff will receive the scholarship to be applied towards the first trimester of classes.

Scholarship Requirements:

  • Referrals must be submitted prior to the student's application. Referrals are not valid for students who have already submitted applications, received admission offers, or enrolled in a program.
  • The scholarship award is valid for referred students who apply and are admitted within one year from the date the referral is received by the admissions department.
