The Professional SEM Program awards a few merit-based scholarships to Professional SEM students in each of Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. These are available to both resident and non-resident Professional SEM students, including international Professional SEM students.

Scholarship requirements may include but are not limited to: type, quality and duration of work experience, academic performance, residency, leadership, and community service.

To be considered for scholarships, all new students must submit an application for a scholarship along with their application to the Professional SEM Program.

All applicants interested in a scholarship must fully complete and submit the online graduate scholarship application along with their application to the Professional SEM Program.

SCHOLARSHIP REQUIREMENTS

Students are STRONGLY encouraged to read the requirements below very carefully before applying for any graduate scholarships:

While the Professional SEM Program does not require scores such as GRE, GMAT, TOEFL, ESL, etc. for the purpose of admission, submitting official copies of these scores to the Professional Program Office, along with evidence of quality and duration of work experience and any other relevant activities (leadership or community service), will strengthen the applicant’s case for a scholarship.

  1. Students will not automatically be considered for scholarship awards.
  2. Students must apply online to be considered by the scholarship committee.
  3. Scholarships will be awarded until all available funds have been exhausted.
  4. Scholarships are non-renewable and cannot be combined or stacked with other scholarships. Scholarship offers will be sent to students from the Professional SEM Program Office via email.

Acceptance of scholarship awards and tuition reductions can result in varying implications to your tax status/situation. Please consult your professional tax advisor to determine the financial implications. You may also contact [email protected].
