Scholarships & Partnerships
While the benefits of the MBA experience here at GW are immeasurable, investing in your future requires careful planning. We understand that pursuing your MBA is a significant financial investment. Our office, along with our individual, alumni corporate and foundation donors and partners, are proud to offer additional scholarship opportunities for exceptional students. Assembling the most talented class possible is not only a long lasting return-on-investment for you, but for everyone else as well.
Merit Based Scholarships
We cannot emphasize enough that our awards are completely merit-based. Primary factors considered in evaluating a candidate for a merit-based award include academic performance, standardized test scores, professional experience, and an evaluative interview. Applicants to all MBA programs are notified of an award at the time of admission and no separate financial aid application is required.
