Tippie MBA Tuition Award Could Be Yours with Just One Tweet
The University of Iowa’s Tippie School of Management is offering a fall 2011 full-tuition scholarship to the Twitter user who submits the best application tweet. The scholarship, valued at just over $37,000, is being offered in an effort to integrate Twitter with Tippie’s approach to academics.
The rules are simple enough—interested applicants simply answer Tippie’s prompt, “What makes you an exceptional Tippie Full-time MBA candidate and future MBA hire?” in 140 characters or less. As their site details, creativity is encouraged and applicants are encouraged to submit photos and video as well as shorten applicable links in their responses using bit.ly.
In order to be accepted, students will still have to meet typical admission standards and requirements.
Submissions must be submitted before July 28, 2011, and a winner will be announced on August 4 on both Facebook and Twitter. All applicants who enter will have their application fee waived!
To submit your tweet and to get started on the application process, visit Tippie’s site here.
Also, be sure to follow Tippie on Twitter @TippieMBAIowa. Good luck to all the contestants!
