MBA Financial Aid for Full-Time Students

Typically, a high percentage (about 50 percent) of incoming full-time Eberhardt MBA students receive some level of merit-based financial assistance. All merit-based awards are made on a rolling basis. Applicants who apply and are admitted early have a better opportunity to secure scholarships and/or graduate assistantships. Accepted applicants will be notified of any award upon acceptance to the MBA and will be asked to complete additional documentation to accept the award offered. Scholarship awards usually range from $2,000-$6,000 and a graduate assistantship assignment can provide up to one-half tuition discount.

Undoubtedly, you will spend a great deal of time looking at MBA programs and planning your finances. We invite you to look beyond the bottom line and compare the value of your education for the investment you will make.

MBA Scholarships

All scholarships are merit-based and awarded on a rolling basis to the best qualified applicants. The Eberhardt School offers students the following scholarships:

Graduate Assistantships

MBA Graduate assistants work a specified number of hours with faculty members on research projects, undergraduate course or graduate management programs support. The standard graduate assistantship award is for one-third tuition remission. Applicants with GMAT scores above 600 and an upper-division GPA of 3.25 or above are eligible for an award of up to one-half tuition as an Eberhardt Scholars recipient.

Student Loans

Loan funds are available for qualified graduate students from either the Federal Direct Stafford or Federal Perkins Loan programs. The Federal Direct Stafford Loan program offers subsidized and unsubsidized loans to those who have demonstrated financial need. The Federal Perkins Loan offers low-interest loans primarily for students who demonstrate high financial need.
