We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for our Winter 2012 Social Venture Scholars (SVS) program. For those unfamiliar with the program, it was launched in 2007 with the goal of making GMAT prep more accessible to MBA-hopefuls working in the non-profit sector. The very first SVS class was taught by our founder, Zeke Vanderhoek. Over the past 5 years we have run 6 SVS programs and helped dozens of deserving individuals get a step closer to business school. Past SVS students have gone on to gain admission to competitive business schools (such as Columbia and Duke), and have used their degrees to advance and found organizations dedicated to positive social change.
Recipients of our SVS scholarship receive free enrollment into a dedicated Live Online GMAT prep course (a $1090 value). Up to 25 scholarships will be awarded to applicants who (1) currently work full-time in an organization that promotes positive social change, (2) plan to use their MBA to work in a public, not-for-profit, or other venture with a social-change oriented mission, and (3) demonstrate clear financial need. This year’s SVS course will begin on Monday, February 20th.
