Awarding Scholarships and Fellowships

Two-Year MBA Students

The MBA Admissions Committee awards scholarships and fellowships from the Goizueta Business Fund for Excellence, our annual fund, based on academic achievement, quality of work experience, demonstrated leadership, and extracurricular activities. Scholarships typically range from partial to full tuition plus stipend. For merit-based awards, all completed applications submitted by Round 3 are automatically considered ā€” no additional application is needed. Those interested in being considered for named scholarships should submit their completed applications by Round 2.

Robert W. Woodruff Scholars

Goizueta Business School offers four Woodruff Scholarships, Emory's most prestigious named scholarship, which includes full tuition and fees and an annual $10,000 stipend guaranteed for the length of the Full-Time MBA. Woodruff Scholars are also invited to participate in the Scholars Academic Program.

The Robert W. Woodruff Foundation is a charitable organization that supports education, healthcare, human services, economic development, art and culture, and the environment through grants. The foundation was established by Robert Woodruff, the long-time president of The Coca-Cola Company.

Woodruff Scholars leave a lasting imprint on Goizueta Business School and Emory University through their leadership, academic performance and life-long relationships. Candidates interested in being considered for this scholarship should possess high academic excellence as well as demonstrated commitment to our core values. The Admissions Committee will evaluate Woodruff candidates from those who have applied and been offered admission by the Round 3 deadline.

Finalists selected to compete for The Woodruff Scholarship will be invited to Atlanta in February for the Woodruff Selection Weekend. The schedule will include social events and meetings with faculty, alumni, and current students. The weekend will conclude with a personal interview with Woodruff Selection Committee Members and a closing reception.
