Tomorrow’s People

Pavlo Sheremeta, who came to Goizueta Business School with the help of fellowship funding, is an example of the power of student awards to attract the best students. Each year Goizueta awards both graduate and undergraduate scholarships totaling more than $15 million. Only 10 percent of that support comes from the school’s endowment and private gifts. The rest must be funded from the school’s operating budget (more than 85 percent of which comes from tuition)—funds that could be used to build academic programs, improve facilities, retain faculty, and support other priorities. You can help Goizueta recruit the world’s top students with your scholarship gifts
