George Washington University School of Business

City Year is proud to partner with George Washington University's School of Business, recognized as one of the country's best business schools, offering annual tuition scholarships.

George Washington University’s School of Business offers City Year AmeriCorps members, alums and staff

$25,000 scholarships

A $25,000 tuition scholarship will be awarded annually to up to three City Year recipients who pursue the full-time Global Master of Business Administration program.

This scholarship dollar amount is not renewable for the second year but will be dispersed between the duration of the program at a set rate to be determined in the scholarship award letter.

Scholarships are awarded to City Year AmeriCorps members and alums who complete at least one term of service and City Year staff employed for at least two years.

The scholarships described above represent the minimum awards; applicants will be considered for additional merit-based aid based on the academic strength of their application.

Additional benefits

  • Application fee waiver
  • Enrollment deferral: a one-year deferral for students who are admitted to the program and who decide to serve additional time with City Year before starting their studies with the School of Business.
