Scholarships and Aid

The Boston College Carroll School of Management offers a wide range of merit-based graduate assistantships and scholarships to both domestic and international Full-Time students. The University also offers loan and work-study programs to help students finance their educations.


Graduate assistantships typically offer a stipend in exchange for either research or administrative responsibility. Assistantships can be offered in combination with scholarship awards.


Merit scholarships range in value and are typically awarded to exceptionally strong candidates. These institutional awards are determined by committee and administered at the point of admission.

More than 70 percent of entering full-time MBA students in 2013 received merit-based scholarships, with the average award totaling approximately $27,000.


Full-Time MBA students admitted to this highly selective program receive merit-based scholarships and are paired with mentors who have achieved significant professional success in the business community. Recent fellowship recipients were paired with C-Level executive mentors from the following companies: Bank of New York Mellon, CoalTek, Colliers Meredith & Grew, Covidien, Deloitte Consulting, LLP, EBI Consulting, Fortune Brands, Goldman Sachs & Company, Highland Capital Partners, Houlihan Lokey, Movado Group, North Hill Consulting, PacStar Communications, Inc., SV Life Sciences, and the United Way of Massachusetts Bay & Merrimack Valley.


Veterans and military personnel are eligible for financial assistance with educational expenses. The GI Bill provides a variety of resources, while the Yellow Ribbon Program offers support to veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who are eligible for the new Post 9/11 GI Bill. What’s more, military members and veterans who have been on active duty within the past 15 years of their application are eligible for an application fee waiver.

For more information about financial assistance programs available to Veterans and active duty service men and women, please visit our U.S. Military and Veterans' Benefits page.
