Masters in Organizational Leadership Scholarships and Fellowships

Masters in Organizational Leadership Scholarships and Fellowships

Tracking down scholarships or grants that are designated specifically for an organizational leadership degree is not easy because the degree is a relatively recent addition to many university catalogs. However the concepts of organizational development and organizational leadership are integral to any MBA program and are recognized among successful business leaders as important skills for mid-level and senior management recruits. So matching up the degree program with the requirements for a scholarship may require some discussion but a graduate degree in organizational leadership may qualify for financial support from an assortment of educational endowments. Some schools offer the Master of Organizational Leadership as a psychology degree, some as an education degree, and some under the umbrella of a MBA program. As organizational development becomes a stronger academic priority more universities will be developing specific degree programs, which will in turn engender sources of financial support for students working in the field.

  1. Project Management Institute offers scholarships for undergraduate programs, master's degrees and doctorate students working towards a degree in project management or a related field. The collection of grants and fellowships offered through the Institute includes at least one specified for an online master's degree program. Many list their criteria as "project management related," which should qualify any applicant in an Organizational Leadership degree program.
  2. United Negro College Fund manages an impressive portfolio of annual scholarship and fellowship programs, all of which are underwritten by corporate partners. Among the participants are Verizon, Burlington Northern, Marriott Corp., Monsanto Chemical, Oracle, T-Mobile, the GAP Foundation, Amtrak, and Anheuser-Busch. These programs have various criteria; some provide funds for graduate programs and some do not. The GAP program is for students pursuing a career in retail; Marriott underwrites students with an interest in the hospitality business. But several of the programs will accept applicants in the business field, which should include organizational leadership.
  3. Hispanic College Fund is an enormous resource for graduate and undergraduate students of Hispanic descent. The Fund has dispensed over $15 million in scholarships and fellowships since it was established in 1993. Today there is a branch of the organization that works to encourage Hispanic students to enter college and another that helps Hispanic graduates enter the workforce. One of the categories for scholarship grants is business, which includes majors in management. This program is open to both undergraduates and graduates; grants range from $500 to $5,000.
  4. Paul & Daisy Soros Foundation Fellowships for New Americans are open to students who are foreign born, naturalized citizens of the United States or whose parents are naturalized citizens. Applicants may be engaged in any course of study but must be college seniors who have been accepted to a graduate program or students who have recently commenced their graduate studies. The grants can amount to up to $90,000 over a period of two years. Criteria include both academic performance and community involvement.
  5. AAUW the American Association of University Women has several programs for fellowships that are made available to women pursuing graduate studies. Some are for doctoral dissertation and others have more general guidelines. There are five categories for graduate fellowships and grants divided by focus and in some cases, by domestic and international interests. The AAUW awards more than $3 million in fellowships and grants to female graduate students every year.
