The University of Virginia Darden School of Business Announces New MBA Scholarships

The competitive scholarships are aimed at students interested in entrepreneurship, innovation and technology

The University of Virginia Darden School of Business has announced a new competitive scholarship program designed to support MBA students who are focused on entrepreneurship, innovation and technology.

The Batten Scholars Program, run by Darden’s Batten Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, offers a number of full-tuition scholarships for students admitted to the school's full-time MBA program, as well as some partial scholarships.

The scholarships come with added benefits including certain program fee waivers, some travel support, career planning, exclusive networking opportunities and mentorship.

The Darden School of Business, which is known for its strong entrepreneurship offering through the Batten Institute, has increased its scholarship fundraising by 700 percent over the past two years.

Applications are now open for the Batten Scholars Program. To be considered for a scholarship, applicants must submit their MBA program application by one of the "early action" deadlines - these are staggered from now until the beginning of January 2019 - along with an additional essay.

More information is available on the scholars program website.
