Opportunity Spotlight: NYU Stern Berkley Scholars

Hello! Welcome back to the blog.

Over the last several weeks we’ve focused on MBA deferred admissions programs such as HBS 2+2, UVA Darden Future Year Scholars, Stanford GSB Deferred Admission, and Yale SOM Silver Scholars. These  programs have been specifically designed for students who are finishing up their undergraduate degrees, but who would like to get some work experience before heading back to the classroom.

This week, however, we’re shifting our focus to a scholarship that supports current college seniors who want to get started on their MBA studies right away.

Sound like you? Read on to hear more about…

The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program at NYU Stern

As the name suggests, The Berkley Scholarship Program is a generous funding opportunity to support graduating college seniors as they pursue an MBA at NYU Stern.  

Established just five years ago, the scholarship is only available to candidates pursuing the two-year full time MBA, Fashion and Luxury MBA, or the Andre Koo Tech MBA.

How generous is the scholarship, you ask? Very!

It covers the following:

  • Full tuition and mandatory fees
  • Stipend for housing and educational expenses
    • $56,000 – two-year Full time MBA
    • $42,000 – Tech MBA and Fashion and Luxury MBA

Pretty incredible, right?

But how do you know if you’re eligible? We’ve got you covered!

To be eligible for consideration, interested applicants must have:

  • Graduated from their undergraduate program between May 1, 2018 and July 31, 2019
  • Graduated from their undergraduate program prior to the first day of orientation for their designated MBA program
  • Submitted a complete application to NYU Stern for the two-year Full time MBA, Tech MBA, or Fashion and Luxury MBA

We know you might be considering applying through the Consortium, so it’s important to note that those who apply through the Consortium are NOT eligible for the Berkley Scholarship Program.

In order to apply for the Berkley Scholarship, both international and domestic students will be able to check a box on their application to express their interest in the scholarship. What could be easier?

Although we feel the scholarship alone is an incredible opportunity, we should also mention that NYU Stern creates an unbeatable MBA experience simply by being located in the U.S. hub of business: New York City.
