Study in USA
Deadline: April 18, 2018
The Yale School of Management will dedicate two scholarships in its full-time MBA program for students from the continent who intend to return and contribute to economic growth in their nations and communities.
The Yale-Africa Impact Scholarships will be awarded based on merit to the candidates most likely to advance Yale SOM’s mission to educate leaders for business and society. The scholarships will provide funding for at least half of the tuition for the full-time MBA program (approximately $70,000–$140,000 USD over two years). Within two years of graduation from Yale, Impact Scholars are expected to return to Africa to work for at least two years in a professional role that contributes to the continent’s development.
These scholarships will be in addition to the school’s existing partnership with the Harambe Entrepreneurship Alliance, which provides a full-tuition scholarship to one outstanding African entrepreneur.
To be considered, prospective students from Africa must apply and be admitted to Yale SOM’s full-time MBA program.
International applicants should keep in mind that fluency in English is required for admission to Yale SOM.
Once admitted, scholarship decisions will be decided based on the competitiveness of the applicants. No additional application is needed.
