Scholarships

“The Skip & Carrie Gordon Scholarship really allowed me to pursue my interest in social impact by giving me more flexibility in what I wanted to do after business school. As someone who was deeply involved in the Center for Social impact the scholarship was a nice recognition of that work. I was truly honored to receive it.”

– Sam Charner, MBA ’16
