MBA Scholarship Opportunities
Mount Saint Mary's University is pleased to announce the availability of the following scholarship and financial aid opportunities:
Ahmanson Veteran Scholarship Initiative
The Ahmanson Veteran Scholarship Initiative (AVSI) supports the young men and women returning in record numbers from Iraq and Afghanistan, whose abilities and experience make them ideal college student candidates. Recognizing that public colleges and universities are not the perfect fit for all students and that the transition from military life to student life can have its challenges, the AVSI is designed to provide returning veterans the support needed to attend and ultimately graduate from private institutions of higher learning.
