Megunticook Scholarship Recipients
Last year, the Yale School of Management launched a new scholarship for students of African American, Hispanic American, and Native American descent. Made possible through a generous gift of alumnus Thomas Matlack Yale SOM '91, the Megunticook Scholars Program selects two first-year MBA candidates each year who demonstrate a core intent to give back to their communities. The award covers full tuition for the two years of the Yale MBA program. It also provides mentoring for the recipients and an opportunity between the first and second year to spend a week in Boston with Mr. Matlack at Megunticook Management Company, a venture capital firm that invests in promising communication, media and technology companies at the earliest stages of their development cycles.
Dwain Carryl and Rafael Zavala are the recipients from the Class of 2004. Dwain earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard and was an equity analyst at Sidoti & Company LLC before coming to Yale. Rafael attended University of California-Irvine and worked as a trader and vice president at Coastal Asset Management. Congratulations to both of them.
The Megunticook Scholarship Program represents one of the key components of the Yale School of Management's efforts to attract the most talented minorities to its MBA program and we are looking to expand the number of such opportunties. If you're interested in establishing a similar scholarship, please contact Kathleen Brown-Dorato or Cindy Albert Link.
