ROCHESTER, N.Y. --(Business Wire)--
The Simon School of Business is establishing a scholarship fund for New
York State residents to recognize and invest in top candidates who are
admitted for full-time MBA or MS business study. The School will
designate $5 million over the next three years to the Simon Business
School New York State Scholarship Fund to provide tuition assistance for
outstanding New York State residents who are admitted and begin their
studies from June 2014 through September 2016.
Full- and partial-tuition scholarships starting at $20,000 per year will
be awarded to highly qualified full-time MBA or MS candidates whose
academic, work, leadership, and extracurricular profiles are
significantly above the norm for enrolling students.
"The Simon School is dedicating scholarship dollars to this fund to
underscore our commitment to investing in the economic development of
our State and region," says Dean Mark Zupan. "One way to promote our
area's economic health is by retaining top talent here where it will
make a significant impact."
Scholarship candidates must meet standard Simon School admissions
criteria, have current residency in New York State at the time of their
