Clarkson’s scholarships are primarily merit based. You are automatically applied for all scholarships when you apply to the program. Merit is primarily based on GMAT, or equivalent scores, and undergraduate GPA, but all aspects of your application are considered. Students who qualify to waive the GMAT will still be considered for scholarships, but typically receive the Fellowship level award.

Scholarships require you to maintain a 3.0 graduate GPA. If you have access to an employer benefit plan, you must choose either it or a merit scholarship, not both.

Awards are granted based on a percent of your program’s total cost, and range from 15% to 75%. Award amounts can change with actual courses taken. The standard award levels are as follows:

Fellowship (3.3 GPA, 550 GMAT) – at least 15%

Dean's (3.5 GPA, 600 GMAT) – at least 25%

Presidential (3.7 GPA, 650 GMAT) – at least 40%

Trustees (3.9 GPA, 700 GMAT) – at least 75%

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
