Miller Business Honors Program

We are excited to see this One Ball State Day grow year after year—all thanks to your generosity to pay it forward. Your dedication continues to support our best and brightest students. Honors-level students have ambitious goals, such as:

  • obtaining multiple internships
  • graduating early
  • pursuing multiple (often unrelated) majors/minors within the traditional four-year timeline
  • having the opportunity to network individually with employers & alumni
  • applying their skills in a real-world environment

We encourage and support our student's goals, and make them aware of options they might not know exist! Please consider supporting the next generation of future Miller Scholars

This program fund directly supports current and future Miller Scholars and the Miller Business Honors Program overall. Specifically, this fund will allow us to provide a wide array of opportunities to give students the best possible experience across their college journey. Our priorities are: 


To further elevate our students' engagement and development, your gift will help us provide a broader set of co-curricular experiences to our high-achieving students. We require these students to attend a wide variety of developmental seminars and workshops. By supporting our programmatic efforts, you help to introduce these advanced students to 

  • higher-profile speakers
  • more geographically diverse company visits
  • professional practices, such as mock interviews and an etiquette dinner
  • enhanced career preparation activities, and more!


The Miller Scholarship is offered to 12 students annually. Since the larger Honors Program's standards and expectations apply to all students, we strive to provide financial support of some kind to all of our honors students. By supporting scholarships, you help relieve students and family members of stress concerning tuition, room and board, books, and many other college costs. With this financial support, students can fully focus on academic and career aspirations. They can also engage more thoroughly in on-campus involvement and leadership and off-campus internships, study abroad, graduate school preparation, research, and more. These extra activities significantly develop personal growth and professional maturity. This growth is key to major and career decision-making, bringing awareness of other cultures and business practices and creating advantages upon entering the workforce or graduate school.  

Future Opportunities

As the Honors Program continues to settle into a new structure post-COVID, we will review current benefits and consider new creative and innovative features for our students. Your feedback and support will provide the ability to continue offering personalized, specialized, and targeted opportunities, which have long-defined this flagship program through employer recognition, regional and national awards, alumni success, and student satisfaction.
