Carlson School to Provide Scholarships for Business Education
Carlson Executive Education is awarding 10 scholarships, valued at up to $3,500 each, to Minnesota-based small businesses, nonprofit organizations and entrepreneurs to be used to take classes at the Carlson School. Candidates for the scholarships must articulate how their organization could overcome challenges or capitalize on opportunities by acquiring new knowledge and skills from the Carlson School. This is the second year the school has awarded such scholarships.
“Last year’s inaugural scholarship program was a great success,” says Mark Kizilos, assistant dean of Carlson Executive Education. “The scholarships enabled Minnesota businesses such as the Minnesota Lions Eye Bank, Netgain Technology, and the Jungle Theatre to name a few, to gain additional insights that will help them thrive. We hope ten more organizations can benefit from our experts this year.”
Scholarship winners will be able to attend one of Carlson Executive Education’s open enrollment programs, which typically consist of two-to- three-days of instruction.
The scholarship is available for small companies or nonprofits that have fewer than 100 employees, as well as individual entrepreneurs.
