We know going back to school isn’t easy. You have a career and a personal life and countless other things to manage, not to mention the financial strain of going back to school. And yet you still want your master’s. Well, we are here to help!

We are pleased to announce that we will be offering up to $1000 in credit on your student account for the Spring 2016 term.

Five scholarships will be awarded:

  1. 3 lucky students will receive a $1000 credit
  2. 2 runner ups will each receive a $500 credit.

In order to be eligible for the scholarship all you have to do is tell us your why. In 250-500 words tell us your reason for going back to school and address the following questions:

  • Why did you decide/are currently deciding to return to school to obtain a graduate degree at Brandeis GPS?
  • What do you hope to gain, professionally and personally, by earning your degree?

Individuals applying for the scholarship must either be admitted to a Brandeis GPS program or have a completed application submitted by December 1, 2015. New applicants are welcome as are GPS Alumni returning for a sequential degree. Submissions must be completed by December 1, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Recipients will be notified no later than December 15, 2015. Those who receive the award will be virtually interviewed and recorded.

This award has no cash value and cannot be redeemed in any ways besides an account credit. If your employer reimburses your tuition, the discount will be passed on to them. The credit is only valid for the 2016 Spring semester and cannot be transferred; it will be applied after any discounts you are already receiving. Lastly, the credit must be applied to your tuition and cannot be put towards specific classes.

We look forward to hearing your stories and wish you all the best of luck. Applicants can submit their essays here. You are also encouraged to share an optional video via social media using the hashtag #GPSWhatsYourWhy.
