AFSM Scholarship is meant to allow talented applicants from every country and sector to apply for Alfred Ford School of Management MBA programme. Since Alfred Ford School of Management is centering around conscious business and leadership practices, we would like to offer financial support to the candidates who demonstrate exceptional experience and leadership skills and at the same time are not able to pay their full tuition fees.
AFSM secured a limited amount of partial scholarships, which are granted under the strict eligibility criteria. For all AFSM scholarships we require applicants to provide accurate details of their financial situation.
Before submitting the scholarship application, you will first need to fill in the application form.
You should then submit your scholarship application form with all the supporting documents as soon as possible after you have submitted the AFSM Application form and no later than 3 weeks before the next programme start date – see here. In order for your scholarship application to be accepted, please ensure that you use the AFSM Scholarship online form to submit your application; applications over email will not be accepted.
AFSM scholarships have a specific eligibility criteria based on a combination of merit and financial need. Candidates will be judged on the quality of their scholarship essays and the degree to which they meet the eligibility criteria. Please see more on the Scholarship Terms and Conditions.
Applicants from developing countries might have a priority in cases when students applying for the same intake have very similar situation. Therefore, when reviewing these scholarship applications, financial need is the main criterion. As a part of the merit criteria, the admissions team will consider the academic and professional achievements and merit distinctions received, which can be noted down in the essay required in the scholarship application form.
List of required supporting documents (please note that all this data will be treated with strict confidentiality by AFSM):
- Proof of salary (latest salary slip or a letter from your employer);
- Bank statements for the last three months that will reflect your checking and savings accounts – an online overview is accepted;
- If you have extenuating/exceptional circumstances in the past year (supporting dependents’ education, medical care, bankruptcy, etc.), provide relevant documentation.
Copies of these documents can be sent by email to your personal student care assistant or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The applicant will be invited for the admission interview with the MBA director who will make an assessment for the scholarship award during that time. If a student already went through the admissions interview before applying for the scholarship, the interview might not be needed.
