​MBA Scholarships

All candidates admitted to Olin are automatically considered for our merit-based Dean’s Scholarships—there is no separate scholarship application.

Awards can cover partial or full tuition. Our Admissions Committee will review your application to determine eligibility and notify you at the time of admission. In addition, we offer access to the following scholarship and fellowship programs:

The CGSM is an organization comprising university and corporate partners that promote diversity in graduate management programs and U.S. business. Founded by Olin, the CGSM provides full-tuition fellowships for MBA study at one of the 17 participating schools. Applicants for this full MBA scholarship should apply to Olin, using the CGSM application instead of the Olin application.

U.S. Military Veterans

We are pleased to offer Olin Veterans Association Scholarships, which vary from partial through full-tuition awards, for those who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces.
