Thank you for your posting.

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of scholarship money available for MBA students at top programs. The general philosophy at most schools is that after you graduate, you will earn more than enough money to repay the loans that you need to take out. This is just reality. There are, however, some schools that have more scholarship money and programs than others - like Johnson, Ross, Darden and Anderson. There are also programs like The Consortium, Parke Fellows, Forte Foundation and the like that give out many scholarships for MBA studies.

The best approach is to write the financial aid office at each school and ask them what scholarship programs they do have available. If you email them between now and June, you might actually be able to speak to them as admissions is entering its slow season.

Good luck.

If you are interested in obtaining a scholarship for your graduate business studies, you should look into these programs. There is very little scholarship money for MBA students in general, but if you do your research, there are pockets of programs like the ones that I list that grant plenty of generous scholarships.
