The Hess Scholarship was created
to recognize outstanding academic performance and provide an incentive for high
academic achievers who did not attend Monmouth University for their
undergraduate degree to enroll in the MBA program by providing a financial
incentive and recognition of their achievements.
The Hess Scholars receive a
$4,000 scholarship each year for up to three years that can be used toward
tuition and fees in the MBA program. This scholarship is awarded in
addition to any Graduate Fellowship Money they receive from the university.
All students accepted
into the program are reviewed to identify those who meet the qualifications of
the scholarship. The top students according to the admissions
materials submitted to the program are identified. There is no application
process but to be eligible you must have applied and been accepted into the MBA
program and did not attend Monmouth University for any of your previous
degrees. Grade point, test scores, previous degree and institution are
the primary considerations for the award with all students ranked on the same
criteria decided by the award committee each year in fall and will apply
throughout the following year for incoming students in Spring and summer
Semesters. A total of 9 awards are available each year.
