Peace Corps Fellows/Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program
Part of an association of 40 universities that offer scholarship support to returning Peace Corps volunteers, the Simon School awards a minimum of $10,000 a year in merit-based scholarship support to admitted full-time candidates who are transitioning immediately out of the Peace Corps. There is also consideration for additional funding depending upon the overall strength of the application.
Teach For America
This consortium of top graduate school programs offers merit-based scholarship support, a waived application fee, and consideration for deferred admission for candidates who are immediately transitioning away from their teaching commitment. Simon guarantees scholarship support of at least $20,000 over the two years of the full-time MBA program for individuals who are admitted directly after the completion of their Teach For America assignment. MS students are guaranteed scholarship support of $20,000 for one year of full-time study.
The Reaching Out MBA Fellowship was created as a joint effort between top business school programs and Reaching Out to demonstrate that business schools are the top destination to develop the out LGBT and active ally business leaders of tomorrow. The LGBT MBA Fellowship recipients each receive a minimum of $10,000 scholarship per academic year, and also receive access to exclusive mentorship and leadership development programming throughout Reaching Out.
