Scholarships & Fellowships

Merit-based scholarships, fellowships, and assistantships
More than half of our students receive merit aid, with awards ranging from $10,000 to full tuition. There’s no need for an additional application—all merit aid, including assistantships, is awarded through the admissions process. Please apply by the Priority deadline (second round) for best consideration.

We base merit-aid awards on the following criteria, without regard to financial need:

  • Academic performance
  • GMAT scores
  • Professional experience
  • Application strength

Dean’s Fellowships
Dean’s Fellowships—providing two years of full tuition—are awarded to students who are truly exceptional in terms of their total profile including work experience, test scores, undergraduate performance, leadership potential and admissions interview. Dean’s Fellows have access to the dean and members of the 
Kelley Dean’s Council, a group of leaders from some of the most important companies in the world.

Forte Fellowships
Forte Foundation’s mission is to increase the number of female business leaders and to support their careers through business education and networks. Female students named Forte Foundation Fellows receive either a full- or half-tuition fellowship award for each of their two years in the Kelley MBA Program.
