San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
Beat The GMAT recently launched its 6th annual GMAT scholarship program for prospective GMAT test-takers, and is currently accepting applications. The leading online MBA news and information hub which serves more than 2 million visitors annually is offering seven GMAT test-prep related prizes this year. The deadline for entry in the program is now less than two weeks away, May 24, 2011. Winners will be announced on the web site on June 1st.
As the Beat The GMAT site has evolved, so has the scholarship program. The program was created in 2006 by the site’s founder, Eric Bahn. His continuing goal is to give back to the online MBA community who offered support, advice and inspiration during his own GMAT preparation time.
“Support of any kind is crucial during the earliest stages of preparing for the MBA application process. Our hope each year with the scholarship program is to alleviate some of the pressure of navigating the initial steps of the GMAT test-taking process,” said Bahn.
Eligibility requirements and complete details about the scholarship program are available on the BTG site at http://www.beatthegmat.com/mba/scholarship. Applications are now being accepted. Participants will be competing for the following individual company-sponsored prizes:
- One Grockit GMAT Video Course and Premium Membership (Online) + $250 GMAT Voucher
- One Kaplan GMAT Advantage Anywhere Course (Online) + $250 GMAT Voucher
- One Knewton GMAT Course (Online) + $250 GMAT Voucher
- One Manhattan GMAT Course (Classroom or Online) + $250 GMAT Voucher
- One Master GMAT Course (Online) + $250 GMAT Voucher
- One Princeton Review GMAT Course (Online) + $250 GMAT Voucher
- One Veritas Prep GMAT Course (Classroom or Online) + $250 GMAT Voucher
This year’s total value of the seven GMAT prep package being offered is more than $8,000.00. To date, the company program has awarded nearly $67,000 in scholarship prizes to more than 30 winners. Overall, including all prizes and promotions, BTG has distributed more than $185,000 over the past six years.
Last year’s recipient of the top prize in the program and an invited judge for this year’s competition summed up her experience this way. “It’s been a whirlwind year! Winning the 2010 Beat The GMAT Scholarship set me on the path to achieving my MBA dream. Coming from a non-traditional pre-MBA background, it gave me the confidence to know that I can be a competitive applicant. Without BTG’s assistance and belief in me, I don’t think I’d be where I am today,” said Uyen Hoang, Johnson at Cornell University ’13, Forté Fellow, Consortium member.
