Student Scholarships and Fellowships
Friends and Alumni of the GSM have established several awards for our MBAs who excel inside the classroom and show great leadership and management potential.
- Merit is an important component and we will certainly consider your academic performance in the program. To make sure we have the most complete information, please submit a current resume and a 1-2 page essay detailing your contributions to the GSM community outside the classroom since joining the UC Davis MBA program. Your name should appear on each essay page.
- See the Fitzsimons’ Donor Award below for additional criteria that should be addressed in your essay if you would like to be considered for that award. For scholarships with additional criteria, include an extra paragraph in your essay with specific information on how you meet the specific criteria. If no additional criteria are listed, use essay guidelines in #1
- If you would like to be considered for any of these awards, please email your essay and current resume to Leadership@gsm.ucdavis.edu by Wednesday, March 4, 2015. Include “Scholarship Application” in the subject line and make sure your name is included on every page you submit. (applications submitted without this subject line may be overlooked and may not be considered. Late applications will also not be considered.)
We look forward to receiving your nomination. If you have any questions, please contact Inger Maher at (530) 754-7529 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will announce the recipients in early April, 2015 and awards will post for spring 2015
