Global Scholars Program

A Need-Based Scholarship Program for International Students

Beginning in fall 2015, a small, highly talented group of international students will be awarded need-based scholarships as part of our Global Scholars Program.

In announcing the new program at her inauguration, President Kerry Healey said:

"Babson's Global Scholars will bring new perspectives and ideas to Babson that we, in turn, will share with the world."

Students selected for the Global Scholars Program will receive four-year, full-tuition scholarships. Global Scholars with greater levels of financial need will be awarded additional grant funds, on a sliding scale based on need, to help with room and board, books and supplies, health insurance, and travel expenses.

Program Details

Global Scholars will benefit from special programming and support, including:

  • Pre-Orientation Program
  • First-Year Scholars Leadership Retreat
  • Mentoring Program
  • Social and Cultural Events

Global Scholars will meet regularly with their mentor, both individually and as a group, to explore academic and personal goals, discuss global events and other topics of interest, plan for their careers, and tap into Babson’s worldwide alumni network.

Application Information

To be considered for the Global Scholars Program, students must apply for financial aid by completing the College Scholarship Service (CSS) PROFILE form by December 1 for early admission applicants, and February 15 for regular admission applicants.

Admission decisions for international financial aid applicants will be made on a need-aware basis; the most highly qualified candidates from different regions around the world will be offered admission and the Global Scholarship. Canadian citizens also should apply for financial aid using the CSS PROFILE, and will be considered for the need-based Canadian Scholarship. ​

"I knew I needed to be at a school where I could use my entrepreneurial ability and my imagination to the fullest and utilize the resources to tap into the opportunities in my country, Liberia. There is no doubt that the education I'm receiving at Babson will set me on a path to fuel economic growth in my country, develop our human resource capital, and most importantly, change people's lives for the better."
