The Martinos hope their gift will inspire those with a similar passion to support Booth students, ensuring that the school will attract applicants with the greatest potential as future leaders.

“My Booth education has been a powerful resource throughout my career in my business and in my work in the community,” said Roxanne Martino. “Rocco and I want to make sure that more students enjoy the full benefit of a Booth education, and I hope my fellow alumni will seize this opportunity to impact the life of a student."

"Attracting and yielding the best students are a key priority for Chicago Booth."

The Martinos' dollar-for-dollar match for new scholarship gifts will help Booth continue making strides in enhancing the diversity of its student body, both in their backgrounds and their career aspirations. Scholarship support also makes a Booth education more attainable for those students who are the best fit for the school’s educational approach.

“Attracting and yielding the best students are a key priority for Chicago Booth,” said Madhav Rajan, Booth Dean and George Pratt Shultz Professor of Accounting. “I am grateful to Roxanne and Rocco for their tremendous generosity and their wish to inspire others to support students. I believe this matching-gift initiative will resonate with our alumni, who care deeply about our students and the school’s continued success.”

"My Booth education has been a powerful resource throughout my career in my business and in my work in the community."
