Many students receive merit-based scholarships to help defray the costs to attend the Full-Time MBA program.  These funds supplement one of the most affordable MBA programs in the nation.


The Full-Time MBA program awards scholarships ranging in value to support many students’ education. Following is a summary of key details about scholarships:

  • Automatic review with admission: All admitted students automatically receive consideration for scholarship support (no additional information is required). To be in a good position to be considered for an award, we encourage you to apply for admission no later than Round 3.
  • Competitive in nature: Admitted students are considered for merit-based scholarship awards based on the strength of their application packages. Top factors can include academic achievements, professional accomplishments, and potential for success.
  • Resident tuition status: Students who live outside of Texas (including international students) can qualify for resident tuition status if they receive a merit-based scholarship award from Mays Business School. Receiving this resident status results in a savings of more than $24,000 (based on 2019 entry) for the total cost of the program.
  • Scholarships available for specific activities: Students also may receive scholarships (after enrolling) to support their participation in specific programs such as study abroad and The Washington Campus.

Texas A&M University offers a significant fellowship for incoming graduate students. This opportunity is limited to U.S. citizens. Selection of recipients  takes place early in the calendar year. Candidates who wish to be considered must complete their applications to the Mays MBA program prior to January 15.

Dr. Dionel Aviles ’53 and Dr. James Johnson ’67 Fellowship Program: This fellowship is awarded to students who have a proven record of success in a diverse environment. These students receive significant funding each year: a $13,000 annual stipend; $10,000 annually for tuition and fees; and additional support from Mays Business School including a health insurance option. The total award package for the Graduate Diversity Fellowship for two years is at least $50,000. Recipients who are not Texas residents also qualify for resident tuition status.
