Program Benefits and Fellowships

In alignment with the UC Summer Institute for Emerging Managers and Leaders (SIEML) goal of increasing diversity in the UC graduate business programs, students who successfully complete the program are eligible to receive a number of benefits to facilitate the pursuit of their long-term career and educational interests.

Two-year Fellowship for Full-Time MBA

SIEML alumni who are admitted to the full-time MBA program at the Rady School of Management (UC San Diego) will receive the An­thony Portantino Fellowship - a two-year full-fee and tuition fellowship.

One year Fellowship to a UC Graduate Business School

SIEML alumni who are admitted to any UC graduate business program will receive a fellowship that covers one year of their tuition and fees. This includes the MBA and other business master’s degree programs in innovation & entrepreneurship, finance, business analytics, accounting, and financial engineering. This also applies to the Ph.D. although the funding model is different for this degree program.

UC Graduate Business School Application fee waiver

When SIEML alumni are ready to apply to UC graduate business programs, they will not have to worry about the additional cost of application fees, which can quickly add up, especially if you apply to more than one program. Alumni will receive an application fee waiver for each UC graduate business school where they submit an application.

Certificate of Completion

Upon completion, students are issued a certificate of completion as an emerging leader and manager that can be cited on their resume as a marketable experience.
