Full Time MBA Scholarships

All full-time MBA students are considered for scholarships during the admission process. Selected students are notified in their admission letters. This applies to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and international students. No separate application is required. Awards are based on academic ability, professional and personal achievements, and potential to contribute to our community. Scholarships range from $10,000 to full tuition. All admissions awarded scholarships are renewable for both years of the program subject to good academic standing.

In addition to admission scholarships, Ross Financial Aid offers limited scholarship opportunities throughout the year. These scholarships normally require application. Emailed announcements will be sent when applications are open and posted on this page (see below). Many of the scholarships are need based, meaning that FAFSA with demonstrated need must be in file to be eligible. Therefore, all FAFSA eligible students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for all aid and scholarships.

In addition to these general Admission scholarships, Ross also offers scholarships for admitted students interested in specific areas:

The Tauber Institute for Global Operations offers a number of scholarships to students in their program.

  • No separate application is required (although students must be admitted to these programs).
  • All students are considered for scholarship awards.
  • Award recipients are notified of selection after they have been admitted into the program.

The Frederick A and Barbara M. Erb Institute for Global Sustainable Enterprise offers various funding opportunities.

  • For recruitment scholarships, applicants may apply once they have been admitted to either Ross or the School of Natural Resources and Environment, and have submitted a complete application to the other school.  Award notifications are usually made within one month of the application date.
