Chicago - Booth Offering MBA Scholarships for Professionals in the Nonprofit and Government Fields

Eight full-tuition scholarships will be available for the school's part-time Weekend MBA program

The University of Chicago's Booth School of Business has announced the launch of a new MBA scholarship program, aimed at professionals in the nonprofit and government sectors.

Under the new "Civic Scholars" program, full-tuition scholarships will be available for eight students in the nonprofit and government sectors enrolled in Booth's part-time Weekend MBA program.

The scholarships will cover all tuition costs for all years of the MBA program. 

The Civic Scholars will take the same classes as other students in Booth's MBA Programs. Ideal candidates will have approximately six to ten years of professional experience when applying to the program. The school's website suggests that ideal candidates will also have a GMAT score of at least 700 and an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher.

In addition to the core curriculum, the scholars will have new, experience-based courses designed exclusively for the program, which allow the scholars to work in small teams on research and consulting projects for social sector and government organizations, as well as on individual projects at the Civic Scholars' own organizations. There will also be a selection of curricular and extra-curricular programs exclusively designed for the recipients.

Booth's Weekend MBA program is delivered through classes on Saturdays, although classes can be taken on Friday evenings as well. The program takes between 2.5 and 3 years to complete.
