William G. McGowan Charitable Fund is pleased to announce the 10 recipients of its 2014 fellowship awards. Fellowships go to second-year MBA students who show outstanding leadership ability, as well as strong dedication to ethics and community service. They must also be in the top five percent of their class at one of the Fund’s 10 partner schools, top MBA programs from across the country.
Fellows receive a full-tuition scholarship for their second-year studies, the largest cash award given by a program of this kind, and mentoring throughout the academic year from a prominent business leader selected by their home school. Fellows also participate in a group project. This year’s project is sponsored by the American Heart Association and will focus on developing a new business case for a portfolio of national programs designed to eliminate heart disease.
