ROMBA Fellowship Application for Fall 2024: Application cycle has closed

    Thank you for your interest in the Reaching Out MBA Fellowship at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. This application form along with your application for admission will be used by our ROMBA Fellowship selection committee to determine award recipients. You must be applying and/or already admitted to start any of our ROMBA-eligible MBA programs in 2024 to be considered at this time. You cannot apply for the fellowship after your program has already started. Fellowship offers will be made before the start of your program.

    Fellowships are limited to seven per year, with three allocated to the Full-Time MBA, (and dual degree programs aligned to the Full-Time MBA) and four to the Online Flexible MBA. Applying before any deadline is highly encouraged and, due to limited availability, all fellowships could be awarded before the latest possible deadline. 
    For best consideration, the deadline for applicants to the Full-Time MBA and Design Leadership MA/MBA is based on your application deadline round
