Merit-based scholarships are a key source he recommends that applicants look out for, stating that "most schools, including Bentley, offer a number of merit MBA scholarships that don't involve a work component." Bentley offers scholarships to qualified full-time and part-time graduate students in the form of tuition reduction. 

Graduate assistantships or student employment positions can also help students with tuition costs while gaining additional experience to bolster their resume: "These positions are generally offered to full-time graduate students with limited work experience and are awarded for merit."

Industry scholarships can be a valuable tool as well for funding opportunities, whether applying for an MBA or any business master's programs: "If you're interested in taxation, research what types of scholarships are available for people looking to pursue a taxation degree."
