An MBA from the Chaifetz School’s unique, full-time program is an investment in your future. But our Jesuit mission inspires us and our donors to do everything we can to make our world-class business education accessible. That means unlike many business schools, we offer scholarships to help you defray the cost of your degree so you can realize a return on your investment even sooner.
Chaifetz School Merit Scholarships
All applicants to the Chaifetz School of Business One-Year MBA program are automatically considered for merit scholarship awards with their application for admission. Award decisions are made based on prior academic performance, GMAT or GRE scores and professional work experience. Chaifetz School Merit Scholarship awards offer support up to $15,000 over the program and are made at the time of admission to assist students in making informed decisions about their education.
Ignatian Service Fellowship
The Ignatian Service Fellowship offers $20,000 tuition scholarships to One-Year MBA students who previously completed a full term of service with Jesuit Volunteer Corps, Catholic Volunteer Network, AmeriCorps, Peace Corps, Teach for America or other approved volunteer service organization. Fellows also receive $5,400 paid internship working in the St. Louis community and focus their consulting work as part of the program on nonprofit or community issues. The Ignatian Service Fellowship may be combined with competitive donor scholarships from the Chaifetz School, but cannot be combined with Chaifetz School merit scholarship awards.
Competitive Donor Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of successful alumni and friends, students accepted to the Chaifetz School One-Year MBA program are also eligible to apply for one of several competitive donor scholarships. Donor scholarship awards are made in addition to, and may be combined with, Chaifetz School Merit Scholarships. Applicants accepted to the One-Year MBA program are provided specific donor scholarship application information upon admission. Scholarship applications must be submitted by April 1, 2020.
