Entrance Awards & Fellowships

The Rotman School is invested in admitting strong candidates who reflect the diversity and accomplishments of our community. We are particularly looking for driven candidates who are committed to integrity, excellence, collaboration and respect. We have a significant pool of entrance awards for which you will automatically be considered as soon as you apply for the Morning or Evening MBAs. Entrance awards range from $5,000 - $30,000. 

We assess all of our candidates for exceptional merit above the minimum admission criteria. Some of the things we look for during this assessment are leadership qualities demonstrated through professional and academic experiences and the overall strength of each application. Candidates who are selected to receive an entrance award will be notified when they receive an offer of admission. 

A few of the specific entrance awards available for successful applicants to the Morning & Evening MBA programs are:

  • New! Ten awards of up to $30,000 each for outstanding applicants
  • Five Women in Business Excellence Awards of $10,000 each
  • Four Morning MBA Excellence Awards of $10,000 each

Forte Fellowships

The Rotman School offers generous support for women leaders through our Initiative for Women in Business and Women In Management Association (WIMA). In 2016, we awarded Forte Foundation Fellowships totaling $60,000 to four outstanding female candidates. The Forte Foundation is a consortium of major corporations and top business schools working together to launch women into fulfilling, significant careers through access to business education, opportunities, and a community of successful women. You can learn more about this fellowship here.

The success of female professionals is a key priority of the Rotman School of Management. Through entrance awards, fellowships, professional development, speaker series events, and networking events, our goal is to create an environment that supports women and enables them to gain a competitive advantage in their careers.
