The Fuqua Impact Scholars is the newest scholarship program Fuqua offers. The program was designed to allow students with a passion for a particular industry or focus to be able to engage more deeply with Fuqua’s research centers, and to establish meaningful connections with research center staff and faculty that will persist after graduation. By doing so, the individual student’s experience is enriched, and the Fuqua community as a whole benefits from the activities, synergies, and relationships as well.
In addition to a merit-based scholarship award, Fuqua Impact Scholars take part in the following cohort activities during their time in the program:
- A welcome reception for all Fuqua Impact Scholars at the start of the program
- A year-end celebration and event for all Fuqua Impact Scholars
- Monthly activities hosted by the research centers
- Mentor incoming Fuqua Impact Scholars
- Priority access to research center staff
- Represent the Fuqua Impact Scholar program in admissions
