MBA/MPP Scholarships

Scholarships for Graduate Students


At Graziadio Business School, we don't just assemble a great curriculum – we assemble a great group of individuals who can learn and grow in a challenging classroom environment. One of the ways we accomplish this is by taking a holistic view of each prospective student exploring scholarship options.

Merit-Based Scholarships

You're much more than a score, so we look beyond each applicant's cumulative GPA, GMAT, or GRE score to take into account your academic achievements, work experience, leadership skills, and other factors that can inform us of your strengths.

Awards are given at the time of admittance to the program.
