At Booth, our mission is to create knowledge with enduring impact and influence and educate current and future leaders.
We’re committed to providing a transformative experience for each of our students as they prepare to transform insights into action in their careers, in their organizations, and in the world.
Our Boundless Scholarship Initiative plays a crucial role in helping us make Chicago Booth accessible to the students with the greatest potential for impact. By dramatically increasing the availability of scholarships, the initiative reduces barriers and provides boundless possibilities for our most talented students.
A Critical Need
Scholarships are crucial to help us attract the most diverse and accomplished candidates and allow them to choose an MBA program on the basis of academics rather than cost. This initiative eases financial constraints so that the most talented students can attend Chicago Booth and reach their full potential.A Critical Need
“My Booth education has been a powerful resource throughout my career, in my business and in my work in the community. [My husband] Rocco and I want to make sure that more students enjoy the full benefit of a Booth education, and I hope my fellow alumni will seize this opportunity to impact the life of a student.”

A decade ago in Chicago Booth, we thought hard about what it is that makes for a great match between the talents and aspirations of our students and what we have to offer. What we learned is that we could induce more people to really seriously consider the Chicago approach by offering scholarships.
When I think about the scholarship, it made me feel like I belonged. And I think it sends a great message that not only do they want you to attend, but they want to support you through your experience.
A lot of your top students are getting into multiple schools. And oftentimes their heart may be in one place, but if the financial pull is pulling them somewhere else, they may not end up at Chicago Booth.
Opportunities for scholarships really encourages people to pursue what they're truly interested in, which has changed my life.
Scholarships are particularly powerful in situations where there's real scarcity, where there aren't very many students from a certain part of the world or from a certain prior demographic who we truly want to have in our classrooms.
Creating leaders is about more than just the classroom experience. It's about the interactions and interpersonal relationships that we develop with each other.
I didn't want just a typical MBA Finance 101, Accounting 101, experience. I wanted to explore social entrepreneurship, and I wanted opportunities to network with like-minded students and alumni.
We are all here to pursue an MBA because we want to become better leaders and better contributors in the future, so a scholarship means that we're able to focus and really be more tactical in our approach.
At Chicago Booth, we've developed a culture of paying it forward. And what that means is that each and every student has an obligation to share wisdom and experience with others. They've internalized that message, particularly the scholarship recipients.
Financial contributions to scholarships go beyond the numbers. They go towards developing an individual who will be a future leader.
So, when you think about giving a gift, understand the full value of your impact. You're empowering individuals to change not only their lives but the lives of others.
I'm very much committed to giving back. And I plan on doing what I can to contribute to the Booth community as much as I can, both while I'm here and later on, when I'm an alum.
Scholarships let the world know that if you have talent and ability, Chicago Booth will invest in you.
