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 $18,500 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: As one of the founding schools of the Consortium, the Wisconsin MBA is dedicated to the mission to enhance diversity in business education and leadership by helping reduce the serious underrepresentation of African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans. Each year students are awarded Consortium Fellowships by the Wisconsin MBA and invited to participate in the Consortium’s annual summer Orientation Program.
Project assistants (PAs) and teaching assistants (TAs) are required to work 13 hours per week or more to receive a waiver of tuition, 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 on the merits of the candidate and qualifications presented on the Merit-based Financial Assistance Form. Needs may change during the academic year and departments may post assistantships throughout the year.
