Entrepreneurship Award

The Fulbright Entrepreneurship Award provides funding for UK graduates to pursue an MBA in entrepreneurship at a US business school.

Do you have an idea for a business venture or social enterprise but need to acquire the financial and practical knowledge and develop the leadership skills to make it happen? Are you looking for an MBA programme that combines a business education with incubation alongside cultural immersion in the United States? We are looking for entrepreneurs who are impatient to make a difference and to promote international collaboration. Applications should explicitly demonstrate how their proposed project embodies Fulbright values.

This award is open to anyone applying to a US business school with an entrepreneurship programme except those applying to Harvard Business School. Students interested in taking an MBA at Harvard Business School should apply for our British Friends of HBS Award. We encourage applicants to explore different specialist publications’ rankings of MBAs in entrepreneurship – from Poets & Quants to US News and World Report.
