Economic Impact Scholarship

For applicants who may be impacted by recent layoffs or rescinded job offers in the United States between October 1, 2022 through April 15, 2023, you may qualify for the following scholarship:

This $12,000 scholarship has been created to acknowledge the impact of a recent layoff or rescinded job offer and serves to make the cost of a graduate business degree more attainable to eligible applicants.

The Economic Impact Scholarship is divided into two $5,000 scholarships and one $2,000 scholarship. The $5,000 scholarship is allotted at the beginning of the initial spring and fall semesters. In addition to this, Lehigh will add an additional $2,000 to help soften the impact of sudden life changes of having to quickly prepare for a graduate program. The $2,000 scholarship is applied to a student’s account in the first semester to lessen the impact of recently incurred costs, such as switching visa status to F-1, new laptop, and relocation costs.

Please note this is a scholarship and not reimbursement, so the recipient does not need to provide evidence of how the scholarship is used.

(scholarship may be combined with other scholarships for highly qualified applicants at the discretion of the Graduate Programs Office)
