1 FAQs for JJ/WBG Scholarship Applicants WHERE CAN YOU STUDY Can I get a scholarship to any masters program that I apply to? No. This scholarship is available for studying only at a master program that has been granted preferred or partner status by the JJ/WBG Scholarship Program. The lists of preferred and partner graduate programs are posted on the Scholarship Program s website. Universities have many graduate programs, but our scholarship is only for those programs listed on our website. If a university s graduate program is not posted on our website as having preferred or partner status, you cannot receive our scholarship to attend that graduate program. For example, the Mid-Carrer MPA Program (The Masons Program) at Harvard, is not granted preferred or partnership status, so the JJ/WBG Scholarship Program does not provide scholarships to students enrolled in that program at Harvard. Likewise, double or dual degree programs with one of our preferred programs are not accepted unless they are explicitly listed on our preferred programs list.
