MBA scholarships

Any applicant who has submitted their online application will automatically be considered for a scholarship by the RSM MBA Awards Committee as part of the application process. Scholarship values differ, but are available up to 50 per cent of the MBA tuition fee. Our financial aid offerings will be determined by the RSM MBA Awards Committee based on the merits of your MBA application. The committee will take into consideration, for example, your essay, profile, GMAT score, admissions interview and evaluation.

Our scholarship deadlines run parallel with our MBA application deadlines. So you must submit your MBA application to be considered for a scholarship. While the MBA Scholarship Awards Committee will consider you for multiple scholarships, only one may be awarded at the discretion of the Committee. If you would like to learn more about your possible scholarship eligibility, please contact the relevant MBA Admissions Manager for your region.

If you are a scholarship recipient, you will be informed by an Admissions Manager at the time of the final decision of your application. The scholarship value you are offered will be deducted from the final MBA tuition fee instalment.
