William R. Berkley Scholarship Program
Supporting Exceptional College Seniors
Immediately after graduating from NYU with a Bachelor of Science in 1966, Mr. Berkley pursued his MBA at Harvard. Through this scholarship program, he aspires to create opportunities for talented seniors who want to pursue a similar path. “At 22 years old, I had big ideas and I was incredibly eager to get started. I knew the tools of an MBA would be essential, and I had no time to lose,” says Berkley. “I had the rare opportunity to pursue my passion at a young age, and we want to bring to Stern the brightest students in the world who are ready to do the same.”
The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program offers a scholarship that 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. Berkley Scholars will also receive intensive mentoring from the Stern community.
The first Berkley Scholars will enroll in Stern's Full-time MBA program in 2014. The School will select a few Berkley Scholars each year based on the combination of stellar academic performance and exceptional potential to contribute to business and society.
To be considered for The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program, interested college seniors must submit a Full-time MBA application to NYU Stern during their senior year by any of the four Stern application deadlines. Interested college seniors must be graduating between December 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014, just prior to the Full-time MBA Fall 2014 start term, to be eligible for the program. Domestic and international students are eligible to apply.
Candidates applying for The William R. Berkley Scholarship Program are not eligible to apply to any NYU dual degree or through The Consortium for Graduate Study in Management. They also are not eligible for the Summer Start program.
