The University of Notre Dame Executive MBA program in South Bend and Chicago, with an off-site classroom in Cincinnati, will award up to eight new fellowships ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 each for new students entering the program this year.
The John Cardinal O'Hara Society and J.A. Bernel Fellowship awards will be determined based on a review of merit and need for each candidate who applies for a fellowship. The fellowships are funded with money provided by Notre Dame Executive MBA alumni specifically for this purpose.
The new fellowships are in addition to need-based fellowships already available to students in the program, program director Sharon Keane said.
To be considered, fellowship candidates must first submit a completed application to the Notre Dame Executive MBA program, and then apply for the EMBA fellowship. Fellowship decisions will be made on a rolling basis and notification of a fellowship award may be provided any time between acceptance into the program and the start of the program.
Award recipients must maintain a cumulative 3.25 grade-point average to remain eligible.
Early application is encouraged. The Class of 2011 application deadline is June 1 for the South Bend/Cincinnati program, and Nov. 1 for the Chicago program.
