UC Davis Staff MBA Scholarship Program

As part of the UC Davis Graduate School of Management’s (GSM) efforts to provide high quality management education to future leaders in business and higher education, the GSM has established a scholarship program for UC Davis employees who want to pursue their MBA at UC Davis (in the Sacramento Part-time MBA Program or the Bay Area Part-time MBA Program) and have demonstrated exceptional management and leadership potential.

This scholarship program is open to new students ONLY, applying to start the program in fall 2017.

Recipients will be selected based on the following criteria:

  • Working at UC Davis in a 75% or higher career appointment.
  • Admitted to the UC Davis Part-time MBA program for the upcoming academic year.
  • Strong academic background and potential.
  • Able to enrich the management education of the MBA program.

Scholarship Application

To apply for the scholarship, please submit:

  • A letter of endorsement from your current UC Davis direct manager. (Scholarship Committee will consider the letter of recommendation submitted with your MBA application, if it was from your direct UC Davis manager).
