Tweeting Your Way To A Full Ride MBA Tuition Scholarship

Social media has been growing by leaps and bounds the past few years. I remember at one time thinking that Twitter was certainly going to be a fad and quickly disappear from the radar of college students nationwide as something “better” came along (Google+ maybe?). Fortunately for my online world, Twitter is alive and well in the social media-sphere.

Twitter is indeed thriving but did you ever imagine that your tweeting could land you a full tuition scholarship to a great college? I never did but apparently the University of Iowa’s MBA program is providing the opportunity for one lucky twitterer to get free tuition. All you have to do is submit your answer to “What makes you an exceptional Tippie Full-time MBA candidate and future MBA hire?” in proper tweet form (140 characters or less) to the University of Iowa’s MBA recruiting/admission office via email at You also need to include a resume…

As always, there are some rules and details that apply:

  • Submit application before July 28, 2011 to be considered.
  • Applicants will not be admitted to the program based solely on their Application Tweet. Applicants need to meet typical admissions criteria.
  • Because of time constraints involved with obtaining a student visa for the fall semester,this is open only to U.S. residents or U.S. permanent residents.
  • All applicants who submit a response will have their application fee waived.
  • The candidate with the most inventive and creative submission will be awarded a full-tuition award package for Fall 2011. Tippie’s full-tuition award packages are valued at $37,240.
  • The winner will be announced on August 4, 2011 on Tippie’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. The chosen candidate will be notified by phone before the formal announcement is made.
  • Also, in good twitter fashion, don’t forget that you can use URL shortening services (like to link to other social media outlets (YouTube/Blogs/Etc…) to help make your application standout.

So, if you have been thinking about getting your MBA and cost has been a limiting factor, you may want to put your tweeting skills to the test and give the University of Iowa’s scholarship contest a whirl.
