Yale Launches New MBA Scholarship for Students From Africa

New funding aimed at students who want to make a difference

Yale School of Management has announced new MBA scholarships aimed at students from Africa who want to make an impact.

As part of the new "Impact Scholarships" scheme, two awards will be available and will cover at least half of the tuition for Yale's full-time MBA program. Within two years of completing their MBAs, the Impact Scholars will be expected to return to Africa and work for at least two years in a role that contributes to the continent's development.

To be considered for the new scholarships, students from Africa must be successfully admitted into the Yale MBA program. No additional application is needed.

According to the school, some 32 students from Africa are currently enrolled in Yale SOM's various degree programs. 

The school also offers a full-tuition MBA scholarship to an entrepreneur from Africa, through the school's existing partnership with the Harambe Entrepreneurship Alliance.

For more information, please see the Yale SOM press release announcing the new MBA scholarships.
