The Mays MBA Class of ’03 has established an endowment to provide financial assistance to an incoming MBA student. Members of the class will contribute approximately $75,000 over the next five years to create the fellowship. Given yearly, the fellowship will be awarded to an MBA student based on his/her leadership, work experience, academic achievement, and career aspirations.
Dean Jerry Strawser has pledged matching funds from the Dean’s Development Council to bring the gift to $150,000. A matching gift from the Heep Foundation at Texas A&M will also help to create the $300,000 MBA Class of 2003 and Mays Business School Dean’s Development Council/Heep Endowed Graduate Fellowship.
“As the first MBA class to do this, we hope this is just the foundation and the beginning of a new Aggie tradition of classes giving back to the MBA program,” says Romney Stewart, one of the MBA candidates who helped initiate this project.
