New “InnovatUR” scholarships offered at Simon

By: Tonya

In repsonse to the down economy, Simon is offering special scholarship support for U.S. citizens and permanent residents adversely affected by the current economic situation.  Over the next two years, up to 50 "InnovatUR" scholarships wil be offered annually to prospective students pursuing a full-time M.B.A. degree at Simon. 

"Much like savvy investors, such as Warren Buffet, know that now is the time to buy financial assets, the Simon School realizes that now is the time for leading business schools to take 'equity stakes,' through scholarship support, in top prospective students," says Dean Mark Zupan. 

Those interested should complete the online application and submit an optional essay explaining why you should be selected for the scholarship award (applicants should use Optional Essay #3 on the online application).  In addition, candidates will need to have an admissions interview on the Simon campus or in select U.S. cities.
