Money is tight for everyone – perhaps, especially aspiring MBAs, who are about to take on student loans and pay exorbitant amounts of tuition and living expenses all while forgoing a salary for one to two years. Although they are few and far between, especially when compared to what’s available for undergrads, scholarships for MBAs exist.
If you’re looking for cash and some help with your application, then you might consider filling out the application for the fourth annual Beat the GMAT scholarship, which is co-sponsored by Manhattan GMAT and Stacy Blackman Consulting. It’s not a whole lot of money, but every little bit counts and winning could defray costs of the application process.
First prize is $500 cash, a full Manhattan GMAT course, and a comprehensive package with Stacy Blackman Consulting. To throw your hat into the ring, you must complete an application, which among other things requires vital stats, such as your name and e-mail address, details about how you heard about the competition, and two essays. You must have finished or be in your last year of college and have a PayPal account to receive cash prizes to be eligible for participation in the scholarship contest. Winners will be announced on May 22, 2009.
You’ll have to get moving if you want to try and win. May 8 is the absolute deadline for submitting the application. If you have questions, you can ask them at the 2009 Beat the GMAT Scholarship Forum.
