Luksic Scholarship Eligibility & Coverage: A total of 4 Luksic Scholarships are available for the 2024 and 2025 academic year for candidates who are accepted onto the Master in Business Analytics and Data Analytics Certificate programs.

The following are not eligible for the Luksic Scholarship:

  • Those who are employed at the Universidad de Chile.
  • Those who are employed at the Luksic Scholars Foundation or the Luksic Foundation.

The Universidad de Chile exclusively manages the application, selection, and allocation of funding processes without any input or participation from the Luksic Scholars Foundation.

In 2018, the Luksic Family began collaborating with the Facultad de Economía y Negocios (FEN) (“The School of Economics and Business”) of the Universidad de Chile and jointly developed an undergraduate exchange program for students at this School. Due to travel restrictions incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic, this program was discontinued in 2020. As a result, the Foundation and FEN decided to redirect the remaining funds to support full scholarships for Chilean candidates selected for the Universidad de Chile-MIT’s Master in Business Analytics program. 

Candidates will be awarded scholarships and/or funding directly from the university to which they apply. The university is exclusively responsible for selection and admissions decisions, and does so at its complete discretion and, subject only to the eligibility conditions established by the respective program. The Luksic Scholars Foundation has no participation or influence in the application processes, admissions decisions, or awarding of scholarships.
