Scholarships

The Evening & Weekend program offers MBA scholarships to entering students in the form of both need and merit based awards. We encourage applicants to apply for scholarships in the round that they applied for admission. However, if you have not applied for one of our scholarships detailed below, you can still apply by the submission date of a later round.

Round 1 Round 2 Round 3*
Submission Date January 20, 2021 March 24, 2021 May 12, 2021
Scholarship Decision Release Date February 12, 2021 April 13, 2021 May 28, 2021

*Scholarships will be awarded to Rounds 1, 2, and 3. Candidates in later rounds may apply by the deadline, however, applications may not be considered if funding is not available.

Loan Options

Over 50 percent of Evening & Weekend MBA students rely on some form of financial assistance, including loans. The Berkeley Haas Financial Aid Office helps EWMBA students efficiently secure the best federal, institutional, and outside funding to achieve their degrees.

Veterans Benefits

The Haas School of Business, as part of the public University of California system, is one of the few top ranked MBA programs in the country that is able to benefit from the expanded Post 9/11 Benefits signed into law in January 2011. Depending on length of qualifying service, veterans can obtain:

  • Funding for up to 100% fees (no annual maximum)
  • A monthly housing allowance (based on days of instruction)
  • An annual book stipend up to $1,000
  • More information can be found here.

Alternate EWMBA Financing Options

Alternate financing can come in the form of company sponsorship, home equity loans, mortgage refinancing, and a number of other options. If you own a home you may be able to approach your lender of choice and take out a home equity loan or refinance your mortgage. If this is an option that appeals to you, speak with bank representatives for more information.
