Those whose offer is declined at any time before the scholarship decision deadline will lose eligibility for the scholarship.
Ineligible applicants will not be considered for this grant unless:

In order to be considered for a scholarship, the applicant only needs to submit a simple scholarship application form. Candidates are encouraged to do so as soon as possible upon having received an acceptance admissions offer to the university’s MBA program.
Following this, the scholarship office will proceed to evaluate the application and notify the candidate of their decision regarding scholarship eligibility. Applicants are encouraged to contact the university administration should they have any questions regarding the application process.
