Graduate students enrolled in advanced business programs tend to be competitive, strategic, and forward-thinking professionals who are passionate about establishing themselves as innovative leaders in the field of business.
But before you can establish yourself as a thought leader in our rapidly-evolving business landscape, you have to obtain a graduate business degree, which means you first have to finance an advanced academic program. With that in mind, we've outlined several scholarships available for graduate business students.
1. AICP Scholarship Program
The Association of Insurance Compliance Professionals (AICP) offers the insurance industry exceptional compliance and ethics education, training, and opportunities to engage with industry experts and regulatory authorities. All applicants, whether undergraduate or post-graduate, must have declared his/her major course work to be in the field of Insurance, Actuarial Science, Economics, Finance, Management, Mathematics, Risk Management, Statistics, or a Business-related field.
2. Jonathan Lax Scholarship Fund for Gay Men
The Jonathan Lax Scholarship Fund for Gay Men was established in 1994 by the late entrepreneur and inventor Jonathan R. Lax for the purpose of encouraging gay men to obtain additional education. Tuition scholarships are awarded in amounts of $5,000 and $10,000 to gay men who live in the five-county Philadelphia region (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties) and Camden County, who are matriculated in a degree program at an accredited college, graduate, or professional school anywhere, or to men attending such schools within the Philadelphia region.
3. Outdoor Entrepreneur Scholarship
To be eligible for this award, applicants must be part of an outdoor organization on campus or planning to start a business after graduation.
