CSI - MBA (Social Impact) Scholarships - 2021

Aligned with the Centre for Social Impact's (CSI) 2022 Strategic Goal of increasing their student reach, breaking down barriers to accessing education, and increasing their partnerships nationally and internationally, CSI is pleased to continue offering scholarships to UNSW AGSM MBA (Social Impact) students who demonstrate ongoing commitment, engagement and leadership in supporting, developing and contributing to better social outcomes in the business, public and/or social purpose sectors in the past and for the future; and demonstrate the capacity to apply their MBA (Social Impact) to further the strategic development of the social purpose sector upon completion.




Program Overview

Scholarships are awarded based on merit and on the calibre of student applications in a given period. If suitable recipients are not identified scholarship funds may be reserved for future applicants. The Centre for Social Impact apportions the total scholarship awarded equally across your Social Impact courses within the UNSW MBA (Social Impact) program (eg the 6 to 7 Social Impact courses or in the case of a transitioning GCSI student 2-3 Social Impact courses that form the Social Impact stream). The scholarship recipient is required to pay the balance amount for each course based on UNSW AGSM course fees.

Please note: If you are unable to fund your study without a scholarship, and you are not awarded one, you are under no obligation to proceed with study and you can withdraw or defer your university offer without financial or academic penalty before the government issued Census date.
