City Year is proud to partner with Babson College's F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business, the educator, convener and thought leader for Entrepreneurship of All Kinds™.

Babson College’s F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business offers City Year AmeriCorps members, alums and staff

20% scholarship

The scholarship award will be equal to 20% of tuition for one City Year applicant per year towards the one-year or two-year full-time Master of Business Administration program.

The scholarship may be renewed in subsequent years of the program for up to two years for the two-year MBA program only, provided recipients maintain continuous registration and remain in good academic standing, according to Olin School of Business’ standards.

The scholarship will be awarded to a City Year AmeriCorps member or alum who completed at least one term of service or a City Year staff member employed for at least two years.

The scholarship described above represents the minimum award; applicants will be considered for additional merit-based aid depending on the academic strength of their application.

Additional benefit

  • Application fee waiver
  • Enrollment deferral: Admitted students may defer enrollment by one year if they decide to stay with City Year for additional time before starting their studies.
