Civic Scholars Program
The Civic Scholars Program, part of the Weekend MBA Program, is a highly selective program designed for impact-driven professionals who work in a 501(c) designated nonprofit organization or for the government. This program offers full-tuition scholarships funded by a gift from the Neubauer Family Foundation to qualifying professionals from across the US.
In addition to taking courses with other MBA students, as a Neubauer Civic Scholar you'll experience specialized programming, and networking opportunities designed specifically for government and nonprofit professionals. Taught by the same faculty as the Full-Time and Evening MBA Programs, you’ll earn the same MBA degree. No other world class business school currently offers a program as comprehensive for civic leaders.
