Students enrolling in the Full-Time MBA Program are eligible for a variety of grants and scholarships as well as deferred-interest federal and private loans. These include:
Dean’s and Faculty Scholarships
Named Donor Scholarships
Graduate Research and Teaching Assistantships
Student Loans (government and private)
Nine out of ten entering Full-Time MBA Program students receive at least one type of grant or scholarship to cover their living expenses or educational fees. These include scholarships and/or grants awarded on the basis of financial need, merit or other factors.
UC Davis MBA Scholarships and Grants
Financial aid funds administered by the Graduate School of Management are merit-based. Recipients are chosen based on the strength of their academic and professional credentials in their admission application; no separate application is required. Last year more than half the incoming class received an award with amounts ranging from $6,900 to $37,600. The Dean’s Scholarship, our most prestigious award, is offered to the top 10 percent of incoming students.
How Financial Aid Works
It is the assumption of most University and all federal need-based financial aid that the student (and spouse) will make the primary contribution toward the student’s education whenever possible. To calculate your expected contribution toward your education, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All students are strongly encouraged to file the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1st, with the deadline being March 1st. The FAFSA will calculate an expected contribution toward your education from your (and your spouse’s) income and/or assets, not including home equity. The Graduate Financial Aid Office will use the standard student budget to calculate your eligibility for aid.
UC Davis Financial Aid
The UC Davis Graduate Financial Aid Office administers additional loans, grant funds and work-study employment that are available to all graduate and professional school students. The Graduate Financial Aid Office also offers short-term and emergency loans designed to help students with unexpected expenses. Financial aid staff can guide students in applying and qualifying for University grants, loans, work-study and other financial support.
The UC Davis Graduate Financial Aid Office can be reached at (530) 752-9246.
What Happens After You Apply?
You will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the Department of Education approximately four weeks after you file your FAFSA. The SAR contains all of the information from your FAFSA plus an initial calculation of your expected student contribution. You may receive a notice of missing information from the Graduate Financial Aid office. If you do not immediately return this notice along with the missing documents, the awarding of your financial aid may be delayed.
The School disburses all loans under the Federal Direct Loan Programs in three installments, one per academic quarter. Disbursements are activated after you have paid your course fees and enrolled in courses.
If you have any questions about filing the FAFSA or the awarding process, please contact the UC Davis Graduate Financial Aid Office at (530) 752-9246.

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
