To find out more about the scholarship opportunities available for studying at University of Georgia, Terry School of Business, we spoke to the school’s director of admissions Deirdre M. Kane (pictured above).

What scholarships do you offer?

We offer both graduate assistantships and scholarships for each year of the program. A graduate assistantship includes a full tuition waiver, healthcare premium discount, and a monthly stipend for the academic year.

Our scholarships range from $5,000-$25,000 per year. Merit aid decisions are based on an evaluation of each candidate’s undergraduate achievements, quality of work experience and GMAT/GRE score.

We offer an assistantship to almost every candidate we admit and that can be combined with additional scholarship funding for qualified candidates.

What is the scholarship cycle and when should I apply for scholarships?

Everyone is automatically considered for merit aid and it is awarded during all five rounds.

Does your school offer additional financial aid in terms of grants/loans outside federal help?  

The University Office of Student Financial Aid works with domestic students who seek need-based funding. We do not provide advice on loan options.

If a student doesn’t receive a scholarship or funding, what advice do you have for them to still pursue their MBA?

Look for external funding options – fellowships, scholarships and such offered by non-profit organizations and others.

Beyond scholarships, what other sources of funding are available?

There are graduate assistantships open to incoming MBA students, which are awarded at the time of acceptance and will assign you to work with a Terry College faculty member or program office.

There are also many other assistantships opportunities at the university which you can apply for in your first or second year, with the Small Business Development Center, the Archway Partnership, the Office of Global Education, and many others.

External assistantships provide the same amount of compensation as those at Terry.
