During the event, more than $240,000 in scholarships were awarded to deserving business students to apply to tuition for the 2022-2023 academic year including several scholarships for students of underrepresented backgrounds.

Accounting major Anna Tanner was awarded the Junior Outstanding Academic Achievement Award, among other scholarships. This award is presented each year to the Brock School of Business junior with the highest grade point average.
