Published on:11-23-2009To better compete for top undergraduate students in business, the College of Management has created the Dean's Scholarship Program. The College is now in the process of securing funding for both expendable and endowed scholarships for this program.
In fall 2009, the school aims to establish 20 of the expendable scholarships, which require gifts of $30,000 each. Then the College will be able to award a minimum of 10 Dean's Scholarships (averaging $7,500 annually for four years) to entering freshmen in both 2010 and 2011.
In order to extend the Dean's Scholarship into perpetuity, the College then will seek to endow a minimum of 40 permanent scholarships, which require gifts of $200,000 each, by June 2015.
To demonstrate his commitment to this program, Dean Steve Salbu was one of the first donors to establish an expendable scholarship.
"The College of Management often loses outstanding admitted students who are not awarded President's Scholarships at Tech," Salbu says. "The Dean's scholarships will go a long way toward building our competitiveness in winning the best and brightest students in the state and nation. A Dean's Scholarship could be the deciding factor in their coming to Tech."
