UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School invites applications for Regional Merit Based MBA scholarships for international students in 2020.
Cultural diversity is at the core of the UCD Smurfit community and to further promote this within the MBA, multiple regional merit-based scholarships will be awarded to exceptional candidates who will be ambassadors for the UCD Smurfit MBA and the School during their studies and after graduation.
Candidates qualifying for more than one scholarship or bursary and successful in that, can’t add or combine them. They will be awarded a higher amount. Candidates can’t transfer or use one scholarship or bursary between or against another Programme. Scholarships and bursaries are also not allowed to be deferred to a future academic year so will be awarded to the student for the year they are offered a place only in UCD Smurfit. That is, students cannot defer their place at UCD Smurfit to a future year.
Worth of Award
- These merit-based scholarships generally cover 50% of the tuition fees for the MBA.
