The PSM program has funds to offer a limited number of partial tuition remission fellowships to students in our program.

These are merit-based and available to students who fit the following criteria:

  • Student must have a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative GPA
  • Student must be pursuing the MBS degree (non-degree students are not eligible)
  • Student must have completed at least 1 semester in the MBS program (term grade(s) must be posted with GPA)
  • Student must be registered for at least 1 course in the upcoming semester
  • Student must not currently have an assistantship or tuition remission from another source
  • Student must not be a full-time employee at a company (internship, co-op, or hourly are eligible)
  • Student shows continued professionalism throughout their time in the program.

The deadlines for submission are as follows:

  • Fall semester 2024: submit applications by August 1, 2024
  • Spring semester 2025: submit applications by December 1, 2024


What are the conditions for the fellowship? 

Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis and at the discretion of the department. Part of the application requires that candidates draft a 500 to 750-word essay in response to the prompt in the application.

Our Senior Media Specialist may contact students who submit exceptional essays for an interview about their experience with the MBS program. 

Students may apply for the fellowship more than once. No student may receive more than two fellowship awards during their enrollment in the MBS program.

How much am I likely to receive?

Funding amounts vary based on availability. Awards are typically $1,000 to $5,000 per semester and are processed as tuition remission.
