The Yates Annual MBA Scholarship is awarded on the basis of merit, financial need and academic record. In order to qualify for the scholarship, a student must have applied and be admitted into the MBA program. The scholarship of up to $2500 will be split and applied equally to two semesters. In order to qualify, students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours each semester (fall and spring). Students must have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 and a GMAT score of at least 470. If a student applicant has already taken Drury MBA courses, the GPA requirement is 3.3 in the completed work. All awardees must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.3 in the Drury MBA program or forfeit the scholarship.
The donor for this scholarship is a former Drury student from Springfield who moved to St Louis to pursue a career in Business. There he became a very successful senior officer of a fortune 100 company. He fondly remembers his time at Drury and would like to assist other deserving students to have a wonderful experience here, as well. Recipients of the scholarship will be connected with the donor and encouraged to communicate with him.
