Online MBA 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 the Reh School of Business programs (see below). These guaranteed levels range between at least 15% up to at least 75% tuition discount**, based upon the overall merits of the candidates’ application. Awards are based on a percentage of the total cost of the specific program you are applying to. ***

  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 continue satisfactory academic standing in order maintain scholarship status (must carry 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.

Merit Scholarship Policy


*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 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.

 

"The Clarkson MBA program allowed me to develop pertinent business skills and meaningful connections with other students, both of which will help me throughout my career.  Clarkson gave me the competitive edge I desired in the workplace and more."
