Berkley Scholars

Established in 2013, The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program supports exceptional college seniors who wish to pursue their Full-time MBA at NYU Stern directly following graduation. The scholarship covers the full two-year tuition and fees, provides a housing stipend of $18,000/year, and includes a $10,000/year stipend for books and other expenses.


To be considered for the Fall 2018 scholarship, interested college seniors must:
  • Be graduating between December 1, 2017 and July 31, 2018
  • Submit a Full-time MBA application to NYU Stern during their senior year (by any Stern application deadline)
Domestic and international students are eligible to apply. There is a check box on the Stern application for candidates to indicate their interest in the scholarship.

Candidates applying for The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program are not eligible to apply through The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, or to any NYU dual degree.
