Megunticook Scholars Program
Launched for the first time last year as one of the key elements of the Yale School of Management's efforts to attract the most talented minorities to its MBA program, we once more are pleased to offer the Megunticook Scholars Program for students of African-American, Hispanic American, and Native American descent. Made possible through the generosity of Yale SOM alumnus Thomas Matlack '91, this program again will recognize two outstanding first-year MBA candidates who demonstrate a core intent to give back to their communities.
The scholarship covers full tuition for the two years of the Yale MBA program. It also provides mentoring for the recipients and an opportunity to spend a week at Megunticook Management Company in Boston with Tom. Megunticook Management Company is a venture capital firm that invests in promising communication, media and technology companies at the earliest stages of their development cycles.
The Admissions team looks forward to reporting in the next newsletter on the two award recipients from the Class of 2005.
