How Do Students and Professionals Afford Their MBAs? The National Society of Hispanic MBAs' Scholarship Program
Since its creation in 1989, NSHMBA's Scholarship Program has given millions to talented, motivated Hispanics
DALLAS, March 10 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This year marks the organization's twenty-first year of its Scholarship Program and its support of Hispanics and their educational goals of pursuing and earning their Masters in Business Administration or equivalent degree. The National Society of Hispanic MBA's Scholarship Program is responsible for ensuring qualified Hispanic graduate students are not burdened by the financial strains of continuing their educations.
The 2010 application period opens March 10 and will end April 30, and financial awards will range from $2,500-$10,000. The awards are a combination of scholarship funds and $250 travel reimbursements for attending the NSHMBA Annual Conference & Career Expo, with the $10,000 scholarships given to the top five (5) full-time applicants who demonstrate financial need.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic achievement, work experience, financial need, personal statements of goals and aspirations, community service, letters of recommendation, and NSHMBA ambassadorship.
"The last year or two has been very challenging for professionals, but one great thing that has come from the challenge is it has given people the power to really evaluate their career roles and then adjust for the better," said Steve Ramos, NSHMBA Interim CEO. "What makes these ideas a reality are things like the NSHMBA Scholarship Program. With it, people embark on their educational journey with nothing but confidence and support that they will succeed."
The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) has paved the way for Hispanics to pursue masters' degrees in business administration, resulting in millions given to deserving Hispanic students and professionals. In the past 5 years, over $3.75 million in financial assistance has been given to 896 recipients.
