Simon Leadership Fellows Program

By: Andrew Brayda

Many leading business schools are offering more generous financial support to attract the best and brightest students. Simon’s Leadership Fellows Program was developed in 2004 to meet this need and provide leadership development through service to the community and the School. The program is supported by full tuition scholarships and a newly adopted stipend program to help cover living expenses. Admitted full-time MBA applicants will compete for the fellowships during two Scholarship Weekends on February 3–5 and March 30–April 1, 2012.

These invitation-only events for admitted full-time MBA candidates include a team case competition, formal and informal interactions with Simon alumni, students, faculty and administrators, and opportunities for attending a class, networking and social interactions with peers. To be eligible, prospective students must submit an online application for admission consideration on or before January 25, 2012.

Fellowships will be awarded to full-time MBA candidates who exhibit outstanding academic and professional credentials, and who have an interest in making a significant impact on the world around them. Fellowship recipients are expected to make a commitment to giving back through active participation in community service projects. In addition to full tuition support for two years of study ($45,000 per year), the fellowships include stipends for living expenses (approximately $10,000 over the two-year program). Other benefits include alumni networking and involvement in special programming, roundtable meetings with senior staff and administrators, and access to key on- and off-campus events and speakers.  
     
“The Simon Leadership Fellows Program will allow us to identify and enroll students who will be the strongest contributors during their time at Simon, and ultimately, throughout their careers,” says Dean Mark Zupan.
