The Herman Family Fellowship was established 1995 by Michael, '64, and Karen Herman to help incoming female students pursue their entrepreneurial interests. Recipients are given a financial award to span their two-year MBA education at Chicago Booth. The fellowship expanded in 2008 to include adjunct fellows who have completed at least one year at Chicago Booth and demonstrated a commitment to entrepreneurship.
Recipients join the family of Herman Family Fellows, allowing them to participate in yearly reunions hosted by the Herman Family and the Polsky Center. These reunions feature panel presentations by female entrepreneurs as well as networking sessions for current and former Herman Fellows to connect and discuss their entrepreneurial efforts.
