WGU M.S. Management and Leadership Scholarship
WGU is pleased to offer the M.S. in Management and Leadership Scholarship. These scholarships, each valued up to $2,000, are designed for working adults who have attained a bachelor’s degree and wish to advance their career in business.
Eligibility RequirementsTo be eligible for this scholarship, students must:
- Complete an application for admission.
- Submit official transcripts of all prior college work.
- Be officially admitted to WGU.
- Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
- Interview with a WGU Scholarship Counselor prior to award decision.
Multiple scholarships will be awarded. However, this is a competitive program and scholarships will be awarded based on a candidate’s academic record, readiness for online study at WGU, and current competency, plus other considerations.
NOTE: This scholarship is designed for new WGU students only. Students are eligible to apply for these scholarships during the enrollment process and up to 60 days after starting a degree program. WGU employees and their spouses are not eligible to receive this scholarship.
Financial Aid is Also Available
You may choose to pay for the remaining portion of your degree through federal financial aid (subject to your eligibility). Pell Grants, which do not have to be repaid, are granted based on financial need. Federal unsubsidized student loans are available to most students. Subsidized loans, which are dependent on financial need, reduce the interest due on loans.
Scholarship Value: $2,000 maximum
This scholarship will be credited to your account at the rate of $500 per six-month term, renewable for up to four terms.
Tuition for a six-month term is $3,250, less the $500 per term scholarship.
Before monies are distributed, the scholarship recipients must read the WGU Student Handbook and agree to and understand the academic progress, tuition, and refund policies. The student will also be required to sign a WGU Scholarship Agreement before monies will be awarded. The student must also meet the university’s On Time Progress requirements to maintain scholarship eligibility. Recipients must be U.S. citizens.
