Beginning with the class of 2019, full-time MBA students at NYU Stern will have a new merit-based scholarship opportunity, the Advancing Women in Business Scholarship. The scholarship, which will be awarded to students who demonstrate a deep and enduring commitment to advancing women in business, will cover the first year of tuition and mandatory fees. Stern anticipates awarding $1 million in Advancing Women in Business scholarships to the class of 2019. The scholarship will not be renewable for the second year of MBA studies.
The Advancing Women in Business scholarship will be awarded for the first time to students starting the program in fall 2017, with Stern expecting to continue awarding the scholarship in future years as well. There is no special application for the scholarship. As merit-based scholarships, male and female applicants will be awarded The Advancing Women in Business scholarship based on the adcom’s evaluation of the MBA application.
Stern Women in Business (SWIB), NYU Stern’s popular and dynamic MBA student club, reinforces the vision behind the scholarship. The club includes four men on its leadership board and creates a supportive community to tackle topics important to women in business and provides opportunities for diverse experiences, perspectives, and resources to be shared. Stern is also a member of The Forte Foundation, a group of top business schools and companies dedicated to directing talented women toward leadership roles in business.
The Advancing Women in Business scholarship is funded in part by alumni and members of the Stern School’s Board of Overseers.
