The School of Economics and Business Administration (SEBA) continues its commitment to diversity with the establishment of two new named endowments that will benefit students from diverse backgrounds. Over the past few months, $100,000 has been committed to establish these endowments bringing the overall endowment for graduate business scholarships to $950,000 over the past two years.
SEBA Advisory Board members are setting the example in this area. Established by board member Eric Flowers MBA ‘04, the Ramsell Endowed Scholarship will benefit an African American graduate business student.
After funding an annual scholarship for prospective graduate business students of Asian descent in 2011, board member Song Woo MBA ’05 has established the Lighthouse Endowed Scholarship for Diversity, so that his commitment to diversity scholarships will also last in perpetuity.
"These endowments for diversity scholarships symbolize SEBA's long term commitment to diversity outreach. The establishment of such scholarships is part of our efforts to support and implement the diversity goals identified in the College's Academic Blueprint and Building-on-Strengths strategic plan," said Zhan Li, Dean of the School of Economics and Business Administration.
