Funding your MBA

We strongly encourage Evening & Weekend MBA students who wish to receive loan funding to assist with financing their education to submit an application for financial aid. The process is simple and all students — regardless of need — are eligible to apply for assistance.

A team of experts at the Chicago Office of Financial Aid are here to simplify these processes and guide you throughout your time at Kellogg.

Scholarships for the Evening & Weekend MBA are offered by admissions and do not require a separate financial aid application.

Scholarships and grants available at Kellogg

The Kellogg Evening & Weekend MBA admissions committee awards a limited number of scholarships during the admission cycle. Scholarship decisions are awarded based on a holistic review of the overall application for admission and may require an additional essay component. Admitted students are typically notified prior to decision deadlines.

The admission committee scholarship awards include:

Dean’s Leadership Scholarships: Awarded to students based on overall strength of application for admission.
Drake Scholarship: Awarded to students who have shown a passion for furthering women’s initiatives.
Forté Foundation Scholarship: Awarded in partnership with the Forté Foundation to female students based on a demonstrated commitment to women and girls via community involvement or personal mentorship.
Vivo Scholarship: The Vivo Foundation focuses on educational equity with a vision to provide tools and resources to enable youth of every race, belief system and socio-economic status to reach their full potential. The Vivo Scholarship is awarded to extraordinary students from underrepresented backgrounds to promote greater diversity in the Kellogg community and among future business leaders.

Beyond Kellogg

There are a variety of scholarship programs offered through state agencies, private foundations and civic and professional organizations. Explore your options for outside resources and scholarship search engines.
