MIT Sloan is able to provide fellowship opportunities to first- and second-year students in the MBA program, thanks in part to the generous support of individual, corporate, and foundation donors.
The MIT Sloan Admissions Committee awards merit-based fellowships to exceptional students based on a variety of criteria, including, but not limited to:
- Academic excellence
- Professional achievements
- Potential to enhance the MIT Sloan community
The following fellowships awarded upon admission. No application required.
The fellowships listed below, many of which have been established through generous gifts to MIT Sloan from alumni and friends of the school, are available to admitted students. Students will be considered for these fellowship awards automatically, dependent upon their eligibility, and do not need to submit an additional application. Students are typically informed if they have received a fellowship upon notification of admittance to the school. This applies to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and international students.

Fellowships will be awarded to outstanding MIT graduate students to further their studies in education, educational technology and innovation, educational policy and reform, and related areas. Graduate students from all schools and disciplines are eligible, with preference given to applicants from Brazil, and then to applicants from any country working on issues relevant to advancing education in Brazil.

McKinsey & Company awards scholarships of $10,000 each to up to three first-year MBA students at the MIT Sloan School of Management. The award recognizes MIT Sloan students with an outstanding record of academic achievement, demonstrated drive and personal impact, and distinctive leadership in professional, community, or campus activities.
The McKinsey Award is open to all incoming MBA students at the MIT Sloan School of Management regardless of professional experience and interest. All MIT Sloan graduate applicants are encouraged to apply. Each applicant must indicate interest in applying for the McKinsey Award by checking the McKinsey Award box on the MIT Sloan application.
The McKinsey Award Committee will select the scholarship recipient(s) based on MIT Sloan application materials, possible in-person interviews, and other relevant information, emphasizing academic excellence; drive and personal impact; and professional, campus, or community leadership.

MIT students who are developing their own non-profits or social enterprises may also apply for Fellowships to support them in this process.
