Merit-based Aid

The Haslam Full-Time MBA offers a limited number of assistantships which provide a university tuition waiver (excluding university and program fees) plus a stipend in exchange for 10 hours of weekly work. Fellowships are also available for exemplary candidates and do not require service.

Consideration for both is based on GPA, GMAT/GRE scores and employment history and awarded through the application process. No additional forms are necessary. Merit-based aid is still available.

Additional assistantships and fellowships offered through the university have varying eligibility requirements.
