The Rutman/Och Advancing Women’s Leadership Initiative was created to educate high-performing young leaders who are committed to advancing women’s leadership in business and economics. Our goal is to graduate more students who:

  • value gender diversity 
  • have the aspiration, knowledge, skills, and opportunities to pursue successful and meaningful careers
  • ascend into leadership roles in their organizations
  • promote women’s leadership in the workplace

The Rutman Fellows will be a cohort of 12-15 students who will receive a $2500 scholarship per year. The $2,500 scholarships are awarded in addition to other UNH merit aid. They may be renewed annually for up to four years provided students maintain standards detailed in the offer letter.

Eligible students of all genders will be invited to apply after admission to the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics.

UNH alumnus Peter T. Paul funded these scholarships to support and recognize the most academically promising students majoring in business administration, economics and hospitality management. When you apply* to major in academic programs at Paul College, you are automatically considered and notified at the time of admission. The $5,000 scholarships are awarded in addition to other UNH merit aid. They may be renewed annually for up to four years provided you maintain academic standards detailed in the offer letter.

*Apply to UNH Admissions by Feb. 1 to be considered for the Peter T. Paul Scholars scholarships (no separate scholarship application process).

Competitive applicants for this award generally:

  • Rank in the top 15% of their graduating class (or equivalent level for unranked schools, as determined by GPA and/or information on the school profile)
  • Show a strong college preparatory curriculum and consistent achievement
  • Achieve standardized test scores of 1300+ SAT / 27+ ACT composite

These are minimum criteria to be considered for the Peter T. Paul Scholarship. Meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee an award as the pool of applicants is competitive and the number of scholarships limited.

    • Expanded academic and career readiness support from academic advisors and Paul College career counselors.
    • Priority access to hands-on collaborative research opportunities with faculty mentors.
    • The option to join a designated living/learning community in a residence hall near the Paul College building.

    The UNH Fellowships Office provides information, counsel, and editorial support to highly motivated students (undergraduates, graduate students, and UNH alumni) applying for national and international fellowships and scholarships. The Office, located at 207 Hood House, also assists faculty members who serve as mentors/references, and coordinates campus interviews and nominations.
