MBA applicants to Georgetown McDonough now benefit from the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award, a post-service benefit earned by individuals who complete an approved term of national service in an AmeriCorps program.
“Our community has a deep commitment to serving the common good, and applicants from the AmeriCorps program have a demonstrated track record of living our values,” said Prashant Malaviya, senior associate dean for MBA programs. “We are excited to offer this fee waiver and scholarship opportunity to AmeriCorps alumni.”
Beginning in the summer of 2019, eligible Full-time and Flex MBA applicants seeking to start their program in fall 2020 and beyond will receive an application fee waiver. Full-time MBA students who receive the AmeriCorps Education Award can be considered to receive a minimum of $5,000 in tuition scholarship funding per year from Georgetown McDonough through the Education Award Matching Program. Flex MBA students who receive the award can be considered to receive a minimum of $5,000 as a one-time-only award.
Georgetown McDonough anticipates awarding one to three scholarships per year based on the strength of the applicant pool.
