All Haas fellowships and scholarships in the Evening & Weekend MBA program are three-year awards. Awards will be disbursed equally across the six terms of the Evening & Weekend MBA program. All students regardless of citizenship status are eligible to apply for Haas Scholarships.

To ensure students are able to make the most informed decision at the time of deposit, we encourage students to complete their scholarship application in the same round for which they are applying for admission. Please note, funding is limited, and funding strategies are subject to change annually. If scholarship funding is a major factor in your decision-making process, we recommend that students apply sooner rather than later in the admission cycle to ensure that you are considered for all available scholarship opportunities.

Selection Process

Need-based awards require both an online application and submission of supporting documentation if selected for an award. Our dynamic algorithm does not allow us to publish an income “cut-off point” therefore we highly recommend that all students with interest in need-based funding apply for consideration. Our review accounts for factors including, but not limited to income, savings, assets, and household size. Applicants are able to apply for these awards via the admissions application.

>> APPLICANT TIP: Utilize the personal statement to explain any factors that have prohibited you from securing sufficient funds to support you while in your MBA program.

Merit award applications are reviewed by committees comprised of representatives from the admissions team and others at Haas. Scholarships and fellowship committees will utilize the admissions application in their deliberations. The supplemental essay, when applicable, will be used to gather additional targeted information for specific awards. The criteria used to select the best recipient among qualified applicants include, but are not limited to: overall strength of the admissions application, professional goals, educational achievement, leadership skills, and embodiment of the Haas Defining Leadership Principles. Please note that meeting the stated criteria does not mean you are guaranteed funds; rather, it means you are eligible for consideration. All application deadlines are noted below and are aligned with the admission application deadlines.

>> APPLICANT TIP: When speaking to the Defining Leadership Principles in your personal statements go beyond simply listing how your values align with the schools. Narratives and case studies are a great way to showcase how these values resonate in your life more organically.
