The Notre Dame Executive MBA

Fellowships

The Notre Dame Executive MBA programs in Chicago and South Bend will award up to eight fellowships, each ranging from $10,000 to $20,000, for new students entering the program.  The John Cardinal O’Hara Society (JCOS) and J.A. Bernel Fellowship awards will be determined based on a combined 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.

To be considered, fellowship candidates must submit a completed application to the Notre Dame Executive MBA program, apply for financial aid through the University's Financial Aid Office and complete the Fellowship Application.  Acceptance into the program is a requirement to receive a fellowship award.  Also, award recipients must maintain a cumulative 3.25 GPA to remain eligible.  Fellowships will be awarded in two rounds, a priority round and a final round.  Those applicants who have completed their applications by the priority deadline will receive first consideration for fellowship awards..

The fellowship deadlines are:

South Bend:

  • Priority Consideration – April 1
  • Applications accepted until June 1

  • Applications accepted until November 

  • To be considered, fellowship candidates must:
