Two Students Receive Lilly Minority Scholarships
The first Eli Lilly Minority Scholarships were awarded last fall to two Chicago GSB students selected by the financial aid office. The annual award, which was established in the spring of 2000, provides tuition assistance. Selection is based on a range of factors, including merit and financial need.

The recipients were first-year students Enoch Anaglate and Robert Watson.

A native of Ghana, Anaglate is a medical doctor who came to the United States to attend a residency program. He plans to combine his interests in medicine and management, possibly working as a health care consultant to nonprofit agencies in developing nations. Anaglate said the Lilly scholarship has made getting an M.B.A. much easier. “I wanted to be a part of a good [M.B.A.] program, and Chicago is an obvious choice,” he explained. “But I have a family, and it would have been tight to take care of them and pay all the fees. [The scholarship] makes things much easier for me.”

Watson, who holds a B.A. in chemical engineering from the University of Texas, plans to work in strategic consulting. He said the Lilly scholarship made his decision to attend Chicago an easy one. “I’m pleased to see that Lilly is a supporter of Chicago GSB students and that they’ve offered me a scholarship to help me select Chicago over other universities. It’s a tribute to Lilly and Chicago for having good relations and recruiting the best students.”

Eli Lilly and Company is a pharmaceutical company headquartered in Indianapolis. The firm was listed in “America’s 50 Best Companies for Minorities,” an article that appeared in Fortune magazine last summer.––E.T.
