Fellowship Opportunities

All international and U.S. applicants are automatically considered for merit-based fellowships and will be awarded upon admission. Fellowships are scholarships, not loans, and are awarded by the department or program to which you have been accepted. Financial Engineering fellowships range from $5,000 to $27,000 annually. Fellowships are awarded based on merit (i.e. GMAT/GRE, GPA, work experience, and leadership background). Institutional aid awards are applied directly towards tuition and will continue as long as you remain in good standing in the program.

For full fellowship consideration, completed applications must be submitted by the priority application deadline. In addition to our general departmental fellowships, we offer the following named fellowship opportunities to Financial Engineering Program applicants:

Military Fellowship

All schools at Claremont Graduate University, including The Drucker School, participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.  The program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate.  The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and the VA will match the same amount as the institution.

You may be eligible if:

  • You served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months
  • You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001
  • You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above.

What the Yellow Ribbon Program provides The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. You may have tuition and fees that exceed that amount if you are attending a private institution, graduate school or attending in an out-of-state status. If you are enrolled at a Yellow Ribbon participating institution and the tuition and fees exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition or fees, additional funds may be available for your education program without an additional charge to your entitlement.

Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with the VA choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed.  The VA will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institution.
