Scholarships

Merit-Based Graduate Business Program Scholarships

All students applying for Reh School of Business graduate programs will automatically be considered for merit-based scholarships and need not fill out a separate scholarship form. As long as funds are available, scholarships are given based on academic achievement (GPA) and GMAT (or equivalent) results. Additional consideration may also be given based upon the overall merits of an application.

There are four award levels associated with Reh School of Business programs. These guaranteed levels range between at least 15% and up to at least 75% tuition discount, based upon the overall merits of a candidate’s application. Awards are based on a percentage of the total cost of the specific program to which you are applying.

Award Levels

  1. Fellowship (3.3 GPA, 550 GMAT) – at least 15%

  2. Dean's (3.5 GPA, 600 GMAT) – at least 25%
  3. Presidential (3.7 GPA, 650 GMAT) – at least 40%
  4. Trustees (3.9 GPA, 700 GMAT) – at least 75%

Clarkson students are expected to keep a satisfactory academic status to maintain scholarship status. This includes achieving a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA in all graduate coursework. Accelerated BS/BA/MBA students who wish to qualify for merit scholarships should take the GMAT regardless of their grade point average. 

Additional Scholarship Awarding Policies:

  • Candidates who have the GMAT (or equivalent) requirement waived as part of their application may still be considered for a merit-based scholarship. Levels will be based upon overall merits of the application, with a minimum award of at least 15%.

  • Scholarship awards are for the full duration of enrollment in the program of study, and actual awards each semester/quarter are prorated based on credits pursued.
  • Applicants who are receiving an employer benefit must select either the discount rate available through Clarkson’s agreement with their employer, or the merit-based scholarship award (the higher of the two), but not both.
  • If a candidate receives course waivers at the time of admission, scholarship amounts awarded above will be prorated to the new total requirements for that program.
