Information for Scholarship Applicants
Applications are warmly welcomed from both public and private sector backgrounds.
  • Harvard Business School is the best business school in the world! The British Friends offers a range of awards towards tuition costs at HBS, depending on financial need, typically $45,000 per award. The Scholarships are administered through the highly prestigious Fulbright Commission. Candidates for joint degrees with the Harvard Kennedy School will also be considered for British Friends scholarships. For more information on all joint Harvard Business School degrees click, Joint Degrees.

  • Criteria for an award (in addition to the Fulbright criteria) include the applicant having been offered a place at HBS, be in financial need and undertake as part of the J-1 visa requirements, to return to the UK for at least two years after graduating with an MBA. Prospective candidates can apply to Fulbright from 1 August 2019. Candidates do not need to hold a firm offer from HBS before applying to Fulbright although they must hold one by the time of interview held in May. The deadline for applications is 6 April 2020. The Fulbright Commission will interview and screen applicants before recommending candidates to the Trustees of the British Friends in April. Successful candidates will be informed in May.

  • Further scholarship details and application forms can be obtained from The US-UK Fulbright Commission and downloaded from the Fulbright website.
