Hult scholarships: What we offer and how to apply
From tuition fees to living expenses, making the choice to invest in your postgraduate degree is no easy decision. When thinking about business school, a top tip is to search and apply for scholarship opportunities as these can help you overcome any financial concerns you may have, and support your journey as an international student.
At Hult, we offer a number of scholarships to help find the best global talent and promote the diversity on campus. For the Class of 2018, here’s the list of Hult’s postgraduate scholarship offers and how you can apply.
1. Merit-Based Scholarships
Merit-based scholarships are awarded to eligible candidates who demonstrate the strongest potential. Competition for scholarships increases as the year progresses. Candidates are therefore encouraged to apply early. We collate applications on set deadlines throughout the year and priority is given to those candidates that submit their applications before the deadlines. To apply for any of the available merit-based scholarships for the class of 2018, you will have to write a short essay on one of the suggested topics. We encourage you to go through the topics and choose the one you feel most comfortable with and relatable to. While you are totally free about the essay content, you will notice that each topic has a few inputs you can use to start your essay and organize the content. Candidates are evaluated on the base of the essay context and overall profile. Below you can find different categories of merit-based scholarships:
