Scholarships of $10,000 and more

The City Year/Kelley MBA Scholarship awards at least $10,000 each year for City Year applicants toward tuition and fees for the Full-Time Master of Business Administration program.

There is no limit to the number of City Year applicants who will be considered for or receive these scholarships each year.

Applicants must meet Kelley’s admissions criteria. Renewal of the scholarship in subsequent years is dependent upon students’ maintaining good academic standing.

Scholarships will be awarded to City Year AmeriCorps members and alums who complete at least one term of service and City Year staff employed for at least two years.

Applicants will be considered for additional merit-based awards depending on the strength of their application.
