All candidates who apply to the program will be considered for scholarships and fellowships.
The Wisconsin MBA awards several different types of merit-based aid each year. These awards are made based on an individual’s combination of standardized test scores, undergraduate performance, and career experience. Additional criteria may be used for evaluation when necessary. Award categories include:
Wisconsin Distinguished Graduate Fellowships (WDGF)
These awards provide an estimated $19,000 stipend paid out over nine months, in addition to full tuition remission and full health insurance for the student. There are no work requirements associated with fellowship awards.
Consortium for Graduate Study in Management Fellowships
The mission of The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management is to increase the representation of African Americans, Native Americans, and Hispanic Americans in education and business. Consortium fellowships are provided by the Wisconsin Full-Time MBA Program and include, at a minimum, full tuition and fees for the duration of the MBA program. More details can be found here.
Project assistants (PAs) and teaching assistants (TAs) are required to work 13 hours per week or more to receive merit-based financial assistance in the form of tuition remission, health insurance, and a stipend. Stipend values vary based on the number of hours worked and experience level. Most PA and TA appointments are made at the time of admission for either a one-year or two-year commitment. Awards are made based on the merits and qualifications of the candidate. Needs may change during the academic year, and departments may post assistantships throughout the year.
Project assistantships, awarded to some admitted applicants, provide an estimated $10,000 stipend paid out over nine months, in addition to full tuition remission and full health insurance for the student. These awards require a 13-hour work commitment per week. Project assistants may work in the MBA Program Office, other departments within the Wisconsin School of Business, or elsewhere on campus.
All admitted Arts Administration applicants will receive a PA merit package. For additional information, contact The Bolz Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These awards provide an estimated $10,000 stipend paid out over nine months, in addition to full tuition remission and full health insurance for the student. Teaching assistantships require a 13–20 hour work commitment per week.
These awards can range from $500-$10,000 and are paid in equal installments over the four semesters of enrollment.
