The Kellogg Executive MBA Program admissions committee awards a limited number of scholarships during the admissions cycle. The scholarship decisions are awarded based on a holistic review of the completed scholarship application, the application for admission, and the interview component. Admitted students are notified of the scholarship awards no later than three weeks prior to Launch Week.
The admissions committee scholarship awards include:
- Drake Scholarship — The Drake Scholarship seeks to equip and inspire high-potential women to pursue, navigate and sustain careers that drive organizational and societal impact, thanks to the generous support of Ms. Ann Drake, EMBA alumna, Class of 1984. The Drake Scholarship significantly reduces the cost of tuition in the program. Award recipients must maintain good academic standing in order to remain eligible.1
- Forté Scholarship — Awarded in partnership with the Forté Foundation; students are selected based on a demonstrated commitment to women and girls via community involvement or personal mentorship. Forté Foundation Scholarships will be awarded per academic year and are automatically renewed for the second year of the program provided the student maintains good academic standing.
- Not-for-Profit Scholarship — Awarded to one student working in a not-for-profit organization per cohort in September and January. The Not-for-Profit Scholarship covers 30% of the tuition in the program. Award recipients must maintain good academic standing in order to remain eligible.
- Dean’s Leadership Award — The award amounts vary and are determined by the admissions committee. Award recipients must maintain good academic standing in order to remain eligible.
NOTE: Scholarship decisions will only be made for admitted students who have completed the scholarship application.
1Scholarship support is matched to female (or female-identifying) students who would have otherwise been awarded support based on either need or merit.
In addition to the scholarships awarded by the admissions committee, the Mork Scholarship and Lavengood Scholarships require students to complete all financial aid materials for consideration and are awarded by the Financial Aid Office.
- Mork Scholarship — One $10,000 scholarship awarded annually to a student working in the energy industries. Students must complete all financial aid application materials.
- Lavengood Scholarship — Awarded to one student working in social services, government, or education on a yearly basis. Scholarship amount varies. Students must complete all financial aid application materials.
