Non-Profit Scholarship for MS Analytics
Service is one of our core values at Texas A&M University. In that spirit, the Department of Statistics is providing one full scholarship each year for our part-time Masters in Analytics to an employee of a non-profit organization. Competitive candidates typically have three or more years of full-time work experience, an impressive academic background or GRE/GMAT score, and currently works with data on a regular basis. Candidates must currently be employed by a non-profit organization willing to provide a business problem and data-set for the program's capstone project. Simply indicate your non-profit work in your "Statement of Purpose" on the pre-questionnaire to be considered.
There are no other assistantships or scholarships available. We strongly encourage enrollees to request sponsorship from their employer for the degree. Enrollees may apply for financial aid (grants, student loans) via the FAFSA. More information at https://financialaid.tamu.edu/graduate.aspx.
