New MBA Scholarship at Stern for undergraduate applicants

During my visit today with Alison Goggin, Senior Director of MBA Admissions at Stern, she mentioned that Stern has just launched a full-ride scholarship program for undergraduate applicants to the MBA program. This looks like an amazing opportunity for exceptional candidates. If you are a senior in college with an exceptional background, I think the William R. Berkley Scholarship Program is something you should consider:

“The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program offers a scholarship that covers the full two-year tuition and fees, provides a housing stipend of $18,000/year, and includes a $10,000/year stipend for books and other expenses. Berkley Scholars will also receive intensive mentoring from the Stern community.
The first Berkley Scholars will enroll in Stern’s Full-time MBA program in 2014. The School will select a few Berkley Scholars each year based on the combination of stellar academic performance and exceptional potential to contribute to business and society.
To be considered for The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program, interested college seniors must submit a Full-time MBA application to NYU Stern during their senior year by any of the four Stern application deadlines. Interested college seniors must be graduating between December 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, just prior to the Full-time MBA Fall 2014 start term, to be eligible for the program. ”

If are a senior college considering application to MBA now, I would  take a close look at the scholarship. Those making application to HBS 2+2, Stanford GSB (undergraduate to MBA directly or differed admission), and Yale Silver Scholars might especially want to look at the Berkley Scholarship Program.   As with those programs, an exceptional academic and extracurricular background would be critical.
