The George Washington University School of Business MBA Admissions will award a fellowship to a full-time Global MBA student who has completed his or her two-year Teach For America commitment. Teach For America is the national corps of top recent college graduates who commit to teach for two years in urban and rural public schools and become lifelong leaders in the effort to expand educational opportunity. The award will cover partial to full tuition for a qualified student admitted to the full-time MBA program.
“Here at GW, our students have a passion for changing the world and making a difference in the local and national community. We are delighted to partner with Teach For America to provide students the opportunity to serve others and earn a world-class education in business,” said Judith Stockmon, executive director of admissions at the GW School of Business.
Scholarships are merit-based and awarded in various amounts. The GWSB MBA program application fee is automatically waived for Teach For America corps members and alumni. College seniors who are interested in participating in both the GWSB MBA and Teach For America can apply separately for both. If admitted to both, students will receive a two-year deferment to participate in Teach for America before starting their MBA.
At the time the student applies to the GW Global MBA Program, he or she must also complete a scholarship application and submit it to Shelly Heinrich firstname.lastname@example.org. The priority deadline to apply for the Teach For America Fellowship is Jan. 28, 2011.
