Scholarships & Fellowships

Most UNF GlobalMBA students fund their tuition and living expenses with a combination of personal savings, scholarships and loans.  The exact mix of each is unique to the individual student.  Once they have been accepted to the GlobalMBA through UNF, we refer students to our dedicated colleagues in UNF's F inancial Aid Office to discuss financial options.  It's helpful to start searching for scholarships early, as many deadlines are set during the academic year prior to the beginning of the GlobalMBA.  The following list is a great place to start but is certainly not exhaustive.  Please note: GlobalMBA students are not eligible for the Study Abroad Scholarships listed  on the Coggin Scholarships page.
