Prospective Graduate Students from Minority Serving Institutions and Historically Black Colleges Invited to Apply for North Star Award

Weatherhead School of Management is a participating school in the new Graduate Student North Star Award. The award, announced and sponsored by the Office of the Provost, encourages students from partnering Minority Serving Institutions and Historically Black Colleges and Universities who meet the qualifications to apply to one of Weatherhead's specialty master's programs and join the Fall '21 cohort.

Applicants to the Master of Accountancy, Master of Supply Chain Management, Master of Finance and Master of Business Analytics and Intelligence programs will be considered for the award.

"We are thrilled that the specialty master’s programs at the Weatherhead School are participating in the North Star Award,” said Ben Vinson III, Provost and Executive Vice President of Case Western Reserve University. “Graduates from these programs go on to not only accelerate their careers and stand out in a competitive industry, but are trained to use their degrees to better the world–something our community needs now more than ever.”

Selected scholars for this award will:

  • Have their application fee waived
  • Receive 50% of their tuition covered
  • Join a community of peers and scholars who will support one another and grow together

Applications for the fall are due May 17. Students interested in the North Star Award are reminded to check “Yes” in the application when asked “Would you like to be considered for the North Star Graduate Student Award?”.
