Merit Scholarships

The City Year/Northeastern University Master of Business Administration Scholarship awards at least 25% of tuition each year for up to two City Year applicants toward the Full-Time and Part-Time Master of Business Administration programs.

Applicants must meet the business school’s admissions criteria. Renewal of the scholarship in subsequent years is dependent upon students maintaining good academic standing.

Scholarships awarded to City Year AmeriCorps members and alums who complete at least one term of service and City Year staff employed for at least two years.

Applicants will be considered for additional merit-based awards depending on the strength of their application.

Additional benefits

  • Application fee waiver
  • Enrollment deferral: Admitted students may defer enrollment by one year if they decide to stay with City Year for additional time before starting their studies.

Why City Year loves Northeastern University’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business

Northeastern University’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business delivers a curriculum that combines knowledge in technology and data analytics with uniquely human skills, such as critical thinking, creativity and an entrepreneurial mindset. Bringing all of that together is Northeastern’s experience-powered approach to education. From undergraduate to master’s programs, you’ll integrate study and professional assignments with meaningful goals and impact. Through service projects, research or executive-led workshops, you’ll widen your perspective and network. You’ll put your ideas into action, take risks and adopt a global outlook.

The Full-Time Master of Business Administration allows you to increase your knowledge of business, position yourself for career advancement, and specialize in a career track––finance, marketing or operations & supply chain management––to gain expertise in key disciplines that are valued by leading companies. A distinguishing feature of the full-time program is the Corporate Residency, where you will work for six months in a full-time, paid, graduate-level position. You can actively manage important projects, assume bottom-line responsibility for budgets and initiatives, interact with executives and expand your professional network.
