Selection Criteria

Weissman Scholars are leaders who already enjoy distinction in their schools and communities.

They have earned grades in their secondary school that place them among the top 5 percent of students in their programs. Their coursework includes Honors, Advanced Placement (AP) and the International Baccalaureate (IB). The scholars standardized test scores are among the best in the world. They have demonstrated a passion for intellectual, creative, and entrepreneurial pursuits, and have a vision for how Babson and the Weissman Scholarship Program can help further dreams, for themselves and the world.

Selection for the Weissman Scholarship is based on the following criteria:

  • Academic excellence and intellectual passion
  • Great distinction in leadership activities
  • Strength of vision for how your goals can be fulfilled at Babson with the support of the Weissman Scholarship Program

These criteria are evaluated through the college application process as well as scholarship-specific application process.

Only first-year applicants are eligible for the scholarship.

For scholarship renewal, students are required to earn a 3.3 cumulative GPA which is assessed at the end of each semester, fulfill all program requirements, and demonstrate a commitment to assuming leadership roles at Babson and beyond.
