MBA Scholarships for International Students

The University of California recently increased tuition for international students by 3.5%, or roughly $1,000, according to The Mercury News.

They’re hardly alone, as international students have sometimes been treated as deep pockets that subsidize their schools.

While the price of the MBA is growing more expensive for students from overseas, there is hope that the MBA can still be financially accessible to them.

Find MBA recently conducted a roundup of various MBA scholarships available to international students.

“Today’s MBA applicant appears to be quite price sensitive and very concerned with the return on their investment. Lowering the cost of an MBA through a merit-based financial aid award does make the MBA degree more accessible,” Jim Holmen, director of admissions and financial aid at the Kelley School of Business in Indiana, tells Find MBA.

Here are four schools, according to Find MBA, that offer scholarships to international MBA students.

Kelley School of Business

At Kelley School of Business in Indiana, fellowships are available to students with strong academic records and leadership skills. These scholarships range from $10,000 to $25,000 per academic year.  

Darden School of Business

At the Darden School of Business in Virginia, there are a number of scholarships available to international MBA students. For instance, the Darden Jefferson Fellowship offers up to two full cost-of-attendance fellowships including full tuition, living expenses, books, computer and a research stipend.

Booth School of Business

George Stigler, a famous economist, was the winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences.

At Chicago’s Booth School of Business, the George J. Stigler Fellowships awarded to graduate students who excel in areas where Stingler’s activities have been influential, such as business, law, and economics.

W.P. Carey School of Business

Arizona’s W.P. Carey School of Business offers the Forward Focus MBA Scholarship, which provides full tuition to any full-time MBA student. For international students, that’s $98,000.
