Financing the MBA

It’s been a while since we posted to our blog because we are busy reviewing Round II applications. We know this is a busy time of year for applicants as well. While you wait for decisions, maybe you are researching how to pay for your MBA. Besides the resources a school or program can offer you, there are other scholarship opportunities available. A great place to start your search is fastweb, a scholarship search engine, and FindMBA’s section on funding. There are also a number of organizations that award scholarships, such as the National Society of Hispanic MBAs, the National Black MBA Association, the Hispanic Scholarship Fund, which offers two scholarships to graduate students – the Staples and ALPFA Scholarships – and there are others, such as those awarded by the North American Interfraternal Foundation.

Each funding organization has specific eligibility requirements and deadlines, but with a little internet digging, you may find some new funding options.

Best Wishes and Happy Holidays!
