The Yates Annual MBA scholarship applications for the 2018-19 school year will open in spring 2019. Applications are due on April 12, 2019 and awardee(s) will be announced on May 3, 2019.

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 Drury's MBA program. The scholarship of up to $2,500 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 recipients must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.3 in the Drury MBA program or forfeit the scholarship.

The donor for this scholarship is a Drury alum from Springfield who moved to St. Louis to pursue a career in business. There, he became a 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. Scholarship recipients will be connected with the donor and encouraged to communicate with him.
