Eligibility for GHD Program Masters Scholarships at Georgetown University
Candidates applying to the Global Human Development Program are required to meet the following requirements:
- A bachelor’s degree.
- Conclusion of courses in introductory macro- and microeconomics and statistics (required to be completed prior to enrollment in August, not necessarily prior to applying).
- Ability to operate efficiently in English and one other language (applicants have to pass an oral proficiency exam before graduation, meaning that they will have a practical command of one foreign language prior to entering the program).

- Experience residing, schooling, and working outside of the US is highly recommended.
How to Apply for GHD Program Masters Scholarships at Georgetown University
To be given consideration for the scholarship awards, candidates have to submit all needed application materials:
- Online application
- Personal statement
- Supplemental data sheet
- Official transcripts and test scores. They encourage all applicants to submit GRE (or GMAT) scores as part of their application. These scores are not needed to apply, but the Admissions Committee highly recommends them, particularly in situations where the undergraduate academic record is not as strong as other portions of the application, or the candidate has not yet completed substantial coursework in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and statistics (or they finished that coursework many years ago).
- Three letters of recommendation
The scholarship awards will be granted based on the total strength of the application. The deadline for admission is January 15.
