LeBow College Underrepresented Minority Scholarship
Drexel University was founded on Anthony J. Drexel’s vision of education across boundaries, whether based on gender, ethnicity, race, or socioeconomic status. As a University, we are committed to achieving this vision, and we are proud of the efforts of the individual colleges, schools, and administrative units to support our diverse community. To demonstrate our commitment to the values of diversity and inclusion, the LeBow College of Business has allocated $150,000 in supplemental scholarships for MBA and MS applicants who identify as an Underrepresented Minority (URM) student.
All students who qualify are considered for the LeBow College URM Scholarship.
