Beyond scholarships and fellowships offered by Chicago Booth, awards are also available through foundations, associations, corporations, and other sources. Chicago Booth welcomes such outside support and encourages you to consider these opportunities. Contact the sponsoring organizations directly regarding the application process.
Booth has built strong corporate relationships across industries to give students and alumni a broad range of employment opportunities. As an institution, we have decided not to promote to prospective students external corporate fellowships that require a summer internship after the first year of study. Such fellowships require an internship commitment prior to arriving on campus in the fall, which could curtail any career exploration or preparation that would help you make the best choice professionally.
