An invitation-only event for admitted Full-Time MBA and MS candidates, Scholarship Weekend provides an opportunity to compete for scholarships beyond what is initially awarded at the time of admission. In fact, our largest merit awards, including full-tuition fellowships and named scholarships, are awarded through Scholarship Weekend.
It includes a challenging team case competition, small group conversation, writing assignments, and formal and informal interactions with Simon alumni, students, faculty, and administration. The weekend is also a great opportunity for you to get to know the Simon Community and your future classmates in a fun, social setting.
