The Fletcher School awards over $7 million dollars in scholarship aid annually. Scholarship decisions are made by the Committee on Admissions and Scholarships based on merit and need. Need is assessed with the Fletcher Scholarship Application (included with the application for admission). Scholarships are renewable for the second year of study unless otherwise noted. Collectively, approximately 40% of MIB students' tuition is offset by scholarships.

All applicants who complete the Fletcher Scholarship Application by January 10 are eligible for scholarship aid consideration. No distinction is made between US and international students in awarding scholarship funds, nor do students need to apply directly for the particular scholarships listed below.

Through the Institute for Business in the Global Context, many students also support their studies with research and internship opportunities.


Schmidheiny Global Business Scholarship

Fletcher is pleased to offer the Schmidheiny Global Business Scholarship to MIB students who show leadership and promise in careers that involve the intersection of global issues and business practice.

All scholarship recipients receive a full tuition scholarship. This scholarship is offered through the generosity of Thomas Schmidheiny.

Fletcher is pleased to offer the Emerging Markets Enterprise Scholarship to MIB students who are committed to fostering the growth of enterprises based in or operating in the emerging markets.
