MIT Supply Chain Excellence Awards

The MIT Supply Chain Excellence Award is given annually at each partner university to the most outstanding graduating senior supply chain and/or industrial engineering major. The award entitles the winner to a tuition scholarship of $25,000 towards the MIT Supply Chain Management (SCM) Master’s Degree Program. Honorable Mention winners (if awarded) receive a $10,000 tuition scholarship.

The award is restricted to US Citizens. Demonstrated coursework in quantitative analysis is a plus. To use the scholarship, the winning student is required to apply and be accepted into the MIT SCM program. Although the SCM program requires 2-5 years of work experience, the winner (and other talented students) have the option to apply to the MIT SCM program immediately for admission with deferred enrollment. The scholarship offer expires after 5 years.

Finalists for the MIT SC Excellence Award will be contacted by the partner university faculty and asked to submit a resume, transcript and a short essay. The final selection will be made jointly by the faculty of the partner university and MIT. Announcement of the winner and presentation of the award is made at the partner university’s senior recognition dinner or equivalent departmental award ceremony shortly prior to graduation.
