The application period for the Siebel Scholars program is officially opened! Each Siebel Scholar receives a merit-based award of $35,000 in the final year of his or her graduate studies. Today, over 1,500 of the world’s brightest minds are Siebel Scholars. This exceptional group has the unique opportunity to directly influence the technologies, policies, and economic and social decisions that shape the future.

Eligibility:

The Siebel Scholars award is based solely upon academic achievement and excellence, and is not need-based financial aid. Nominees should:

  • Rank within the top 10% of their class based on academic results
  • Have a track record of distinguished academic merit
  • Demonstrate excellent leadership qualities
  • Have completed at least one year and is reasonably expected to have only one year remaining in the Master’s or be in the last year of the undergraduate program in a co-terminus undergraduate and Master’s program (in which case the student should expect to graduate with both degrees within one academic year),
    • or Nominee is a Master’s student in a 16 or 18 month program (either those who have been in the Master’s program for one year and have six months left, or those who have been in the program for six months and have one year left).

Please note: graduate students who will attain a MS in the course of their PhD studies are not eligible.
