Scholarships for Full-time MBA Students

Georgetown offers merit scholarships to students who have given up their jobs to pursue graduate education on a full-time basis. Students often explore external scholarship and fellowship opportunities to supplement the cost of their education.

Merit-Based Scholarships
More than $1.5 million is available to MBA applicants through merit-based scholarships. With the goal of recruiting top talent, scholarship recipients are selected from the Georgetown Full-time MBA Program's pool of applicants based on academic performance, work experience, the evaluative interview, and other qualitative parts of the application.

Georgetown MBA Merit Scholarship
The McDonough School of Business awards scholarships based an applicant’s academic, personal, and professional accomplishments. Recipients will demonstrate ethical leadership, academic accomplishment, and professional achievements through their application and interview for the MBA program. They typically show a commitment to service to others through past and current activities.

All Georgetown MBA Program applicants automatically are considered for a merit-based scholarship and do not need to submit any additional materials to be considered. Prospective students are encouraged to apply early to best position themselves for scholarship consideration. Scholarship notification is included in an applicant’s admissions decision letter.

Designations for Forté, NSHMBA, and Consortium Fellowships are determined at the same time scholarship decisions are made.
