Program Fees and Financial Aid
The fee for the 2018 Chicago Booth Summer Business Scholars Program is $6,300. The fee includes all instruction, books and materials, accommodations (with roommates) on the University of Chicago's campus, and some meals. Transportation to all corporate visits and special events is included, along with entry fees to local Chicago attractions that are scheduled within the program.
If you are interested in financing, one viable option available to you is the Sallie Mae Smart Option Loan. This loan is a credit-based loan that provides competitive fixed and variable interest rates with a number of repayment options. Please note that if you use the Sallie Mae Smart Option Loan to finance SBSP, you can apply 10 months prior to the loan period start date.
Chicago Booth’s Summer Business Scholars Program offers merit-based awards to a limited number of top candidates at the time of admission. There is no formal application process for merit-based awards. The scholarship committee works to identify those students who have excelled in academics, student leadership, and service to the community, among other factors. Depending on the year, between 35% and 40% of SBSP students obtain either full or half scholarships to attend the program.
To secure your place in the class, a nonrefundable deposit will be required to confirm your acceptance into the program.
