Scholarship Opportunities

  • Hess Scholars – 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 offering a financial incentive and recognition of their achievements. 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 scholarship award students receive from the university. 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 average, test scores and previous degree and institution are the primary considerations for the award. A total of nine awards are available each year.
