Yale SOM provides a small number of partial scholarships to exceptional candidates for the MBA for Executives program. Recipients of these highly selective awards will have a demonstrated track record of outstanding leadership at the intersection of business and society. Awards will be made to individuals whom the selection committee members believe will enhance the program experience through their distinctive perspectives and experiences. In addition to merit, demonstrated financial need will play an important role in determining award recipients.
The scholarship application is separate from the application to the program. To be considered for an award, applicants must first submit a completed online MBA for Executives application (early application to the program is recommended). Second, submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. Have your results sent directly to Yale (Yale University Code: 001426). It will take the processor 3-4 weeks to send your results to Yale. Third, submit a personal letter of 300-500 words detailing why you should be considered for a scholarship. Email letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Scholarship letters are due by April 15, 2014 and all scholarship awards will be announced on April 30, 2014.
