Everyone to whom much is given, of him much will be required
A small number of gifted individuals can have a disproportionate impact on society, and they often do. The newly created Nova Fellowship for Excellence identifies the most talented students in the school and empowers them to change the world. It will provide some chosen few with that extra bit they may need to achieve a world-class education.
The Fellowship prepares individuals to achieve their full potential. As students, no doubt, but also as citizens and human beings in their full stature. The program includes exclusive networking opportunities, internship experiences and mentoring from business leaders. In other words, it gives you the opportunity to go out into the world and leave your mark. What that mark will be is up to you.
The Nova Fellowship for Excellence is aimed at identifying talent and providing those who prove theirs with nothing short of the best possible learning environment. That means the best learning experience, not just the knowledge itself.
We see individual accomplishment as the foundation of social progress, which is to say we believe our Fellows will become the next generation of business and society leaders. Our benefactors, both individual and corporate, share that belief and act accordingly, creating opportunities for them and stimulating their progress in all areas.
Rewarding talent and commitment is the first and the ultimate purpose of the Nova Fellowship for Excellence. In between you will find room for an infinity of other goals, your own individual goals. Having your potential recognized is just the beginning. Team spirit, entrepreneurship, integrity and respect are no less powerful and precious tools than ambition, learning agility and curricular performance. The Fellowship is more than just an academic award or honor, it is an ecosystem where energy and creativity turn into deeds, where aspirations and dreams become day-to-day life.
Fellows will access internships with corporate donors, enabling them to gain real work experience, and take advantage of networking with Nova SBE alumni, individual sponsors and benefactors. Fellows will be matched with mentors (alumni benefactors or executives from the corporate donors) who will share their experience and assist them planning their career.
Nova Fellowship for Excellence provides financial support to the Fellows offering a reduction of 20% in tuition fees.
With great power comes great responsibility

Candidates are eligible upon admission to a master program. Being much more than just a scholarship means that the Nova Fellowship for Excellence will also evaluate more than official academic transcripts and letters of reference. Leadership contribution and proven experience in the areas of sports, culture, charities and civic causes will be assessed in a comprehensive and thorough merit-based selection process.
The Admissions Committee will evaluate academic excellence, experience and the motivation of each candidate.
The Nova Fellowship for Excellence is fully sponsored by individuals and corporations who will be involved in the Fellowship community, participating in unique events and the governance of the program.
