SolBridge International School of Business offers financial aid in the form of admission scholarships. Scholarships are granted on a case by case basis depending on the applicant’s English level, academic standing, and extra-curricular activities. Admission scholarships are given for tuition only and typically range from 30% to 70% of the cost of tuition. In extraordinary circumstances, a financial grant of 100% may be granted
Duration of the Admission Scholarship
Admissions Scholarships are valid for the following periods:
- BBA Regular Student – 1 year
- BBA Transfer Student – 1 semester
- MBA Regular Student – 1 semester
- MBA Transfer Student – 1 semester
Once their Admissions Scholarship expires, students can maintain their initial scholarships by earning a GPA of 3.75/4.5 or higher. This is the Merit-Based Scholarship. Additional scholarship may be awarded through the Merit-Based scholarship based upon your GPA at SolBridge.
All scholarships are tuition based. There is no financial aid available for cost of living expenses. This includes the dormitory, costs of meals, books, medical insurance, student activity fees, and other living expenses. Even if an applicant is granted a scholarship, they still must be able to provide for their other expenses.
