Scholarships, Fellowships, and Sponsorships

SCHOLARSHIPS, FELLOWSHIPS, AND SPONSORSHIPS

Tuck scholarship awards are made possible through the generosity of Tuck alumni, corporations, and nonprofit foundations. There is no separate application process for Tuck scholarships. Tuck’s admissions and financial aid offices will review the application materials submitted by all candidates for admission. Tuck uses discretion in awarding scholarships to incoming students who will significantly contribute to Tuck’s distinctly immersive learning community. We offer scholarships to enroll outstanding students who, absent funding, might not attend the Tuck School. Recipients are notified at the time of their offer of admission.

Tuck scholarships range from $10,000 to full tuition with the average being $26,415.

Scholarships are automatically renewed in the second year, provided that a satisfactory academic record is maintained throughout the first year at Tuck. Students who receive a scholarship will be provided detailed information including name and donor after matriculation. These named scholarships replace the Tuck scholarship already received. All scholarship recipients will be required to write a letter of appreciation to the donor.

Consortium for Graduate Study in Management Fellowship

Tuck is a proud member of the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management (CGSM). The CGSM is a continually growing and evolving alliance of some of the world’s leading graduate business schools and business organizations. The CGSM awards merit-based, full-tuition fellowships to top MBA candidates who have a proven record of promoting inclusion in school, in their jobs, or in their personal lives. Scholarship is not a requirement for membership into the CGSM.

Forté

Tuck is a proud member of Forté, a consortium of educational institutions, businesses, and nonprofit groups formed to increase the number of women business leaders and to support their careers through events, networking, and other career resources. Each year the Tuck admissions committee selects several exceptional women candidates as Forté fellows who receive a Tuck scholarship in addition to the other Forté fellow benefits as outlined on their website.

Reaching Out MBA (ROMBA)

Reaching Out is a nonprofit organization with over a dozen unique programs dedicated to educating, inspiring, and connecting the LGBTQ MBA community to impact change in the workplace and create the next generation of out leaders. Tuck participates in the ROMBA LGBTQ MBA Fellowship Program  and each year names incoming students as ROMBA fellows who will receive a Tuck scholarship as well as access to special mentorship and leadership development programming through ROMBA.

Post-9/11 GI Bill® and Yellow Ribbon Program

The Post-9/11 GI Bill provides financial support for education to individuals with at least 90 days of aggregate service on or after September 11, 2001, or individuals discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days. You must have received an honorable discharge to be eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The percent of eligibility is service related. In addition to tuition and fees, the GI Bill provides a housing allowance and a book and supplies allowance. Some changes were made to the bill through the Post-9/11 Veterans Education Assistance Improvement Act of 2010 and more recently through the Harry W. Colmery Veteran’s Educational Assistance Act of the 2017 also known as the Forever GI Bill.

The Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The program allows institutions to enter into a voluntary agreement with the VA to fund tuition and fee expenses that exceed the annual VA cap of $23,671.94 at private institutions for individuals eligible for the 100 percent payment tier. The institution can contribute up to 50 percent of those expenses and VA will match the same amount as the institution. Tuck participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP) without limitation on the number of veterans enrolled and at a maximum level of $20,000 in funding for the 2018-19 academic year. We are proud to support our veterans.

Sponsorships

Some employers or organizations will offer sponsorships to help fund an MBA. While this can be a great way to minimize debt, we encourage students to review the terms and requirements carefully. If you choose not to return to your employer or follow through with the terms specified by the organization, you may have to reimburse the sponsor immediately. Financial aid is ineligible for prior year charges.
