After the Competition

The Admissions Committee typically makes decisions about scholarship increases, named scholarships, and full-tuition fellowships within the week after participation. These scholarship increases are awarded after reviewing results from discussions, a team case competition, your overall participation during the competition, and your previously submitted online application for admission.

Scholarship Weekend was where I met my future roommates, who remain two of my best friends. The opportunity to increase scholarship while connecting with other professionals with similar interests was invaluable to me. Attending Scholarship Weekend made me realize that Simon was the place for me.
