​Global Scholars Program

A Need-Based Scholarship Program for International Students

Each year since 2014, a small, highly talented group of international students is awarded need-based scholarships as part of our Global Scholars Program.

In announcing the 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 also be awarded additional grant funds, in varying amounts 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 mentors, 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

Students interested in the Global Scholars Program must apply for admission through either Early Decision or Regular Decision. To be considered for the Global Scholars Program, students must apply for financial aid by completing the CSS PROFILE form, by November 15 for Early Decision applicants and by February 1 for Regular Decision 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 who apply for financial aid using the CSS PROFILE will be considered for the need-based Canadian Scholarship. ​​​​
