NYU Stern is establishing a new merit-based scholarship, the Advancing Women in Business Scholarship, for incoming full-time MBA students.  The scholarships will be awarded to students who demonstrate a deep and abiding commitment to advancing women in business and will cover the first year of tuition and mandatory fees.  Stern expects to award $1 million in Advancing Women in Business scholarships to students in the Class of 2019.

The Advancing Women in Business Scholarship is partially funded by alumnae and members of the Stern School’s Board of Overseers:
  • Tania Ahuja, PhD 2001
  • Mary C. Farrell, MBA 1976
  • Nomi Ghez, GSAS 1976, ADCRT 1981
  • Judy Lee, BS 1988
  • Alison Mass, BS 1980, MBA 1981
  • Ellen J. Schapps Richman, MBA 1979
  • Chandrika Tandon
NYU Stern’s popular and active MBA student club, Stern Women in Business (SWIB), reinforces the vision behind the scholarship.  The club, whose leadership board includes four men, generates a supportive community to address topics significant to women in business and provides forums where diverse experiences, perspectives and resources can be shared.  Stern is also a member of the Forte Foundation, a consortium of top business schools and companies dedicated to directing talented women toward leadership roles in business.
