More than 60% of MBA students receive some type of fellowship, ranging from $10,000 a year to full tuition plus additional assistance.  

Men and women who have served in the armed forces are often leaders in our MBA program and contribute immensely to the culture of the program based on the shared beliefs of honor, respect and integrity. Freedom Fellowships are provided to recognize those contributions.

The new Kenneth R. Meyer Fellowships, established with a $10 million gift from the Notre Dame alumnus of the same name, supports 16 fellowships annually – eight for admitted applicants in each two-year MBA class.
