New Scholarships for Fall 2023

MSSCM applicants for this fall who are residing and authorized to work in the United States can be considered for 15% merit-based scholarships. Additionally, a limited number of 50% merit-based scholarships are also available. 

U.S. military members/veterans and employees from our 11 corporate partners are automatically eligible for a 15% tuition discount or are welcome to apply for a limited number of 50% merit-based scholarships.

MSSCM scholarships are not transferable to other degree programs and may not be "stacked" with other scholarships or discounts.

How to apply
Candidates are invited to submit an essay to be considered for one of the 15% or 50% merit-based scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded on a merit basis to a limited number of admitted candidates who demonstrate the potential to be exemplary contributors to the Carlson School community and possess outstanding academic and professional achievements. 

The scholarship essay is not required for admission to the program or for the military or corporate discount. However, an essay and two letters of recommendation are required to be considered for merit scholarships. The essay and letters of recommendation must be submitted within the application itself, as no late or alternative submission methods will be accepted.

Selected students will be notified of their award at the time of admission.
