Hi Jon,
Could you please provide any insights on what one should write why one should get the scholarships in 2 year MBA program especially for US schools(top 15/20 )...?

Much appreciate your feedback on this.

Hey debayan,
Good to see you around :). Actually there is no "Separate" strategy to get a scholarship. The more the schools wants you to come, the more money they will offer you. It's more a less a strategic decision of enticement, although they may also take into consideration their perception of your need based on salary and family information as well as your essays, but mainly these scholarships are offered on a merit basis, so it will be on the strength of your application overall (and here there is no separate strategy beyond giving in the the best application you can).

Thank you Jon... :)
Yup! you're right again...not many schools offer need-based scholarships,it's mostly merit-based scholarships and for the latter it's really a strategic decision and as you've said- heavily depends on one's candidacy overall.So for this merit-based scholarships, most of the schools I guess,don't have any separate applications.In that case, applicants need to show their best strength through their essays only I guess.Is there any other way to showcase this...?

My second question is-In general how the need based offers are determined..? Is it based on the personal assets of the candidate solely or that of his/her family or else?

Look forward to your reply Sir..!

For your first question, like I wrote, I think it's about just making your best application (and this will be different for all).

for your second question, I'd say what works for need-based scholarships (which usually require a separate application or an essay or something) is a mix between numbers and story. Obviously you and your family's financial situation count for a lot, but just as much is the STORY you tell behind your need (of you and your family).

Best,
