Lehigh University to grant three full scholarships for UN Staff

20 November 2017 — United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) member Lehigh University has announced the allocation of three full-tuition scholarships for their new one-year MBA programme for United Nations staff and diplomatic missions to the United Nations that have a recognized undergraduate degree. Lehigh will also award qualified United Nations applicants that are not selected for the full scholarships grants of at least $10,000 in tuition scholarship.

Students who receive a Lehigh University scholarship will be mentored by a faculty member, a professional coach and an industry mentor. The students will be encouraged to acquire an interdisciplinary perspective on sustainable development-related societal topics ranging from energy generation and storage to changing demographics.

The deadline to submit applications is 5 January 2018 to start the one-year MBA programme in July 2018. The final deadline is set for 15 March 2018.  

Lehigh University is a private research institution and a regular contributor to UNAI-related events and discussions. Its four colleges are located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA.
