- By January 27, 2017
Fifteen Full-Time MBA students were named recipients of Chicago Booth’s 2016–17 Alumni Recognition Awards (ARA), given to second-year students with outstanding academic records who demonstrate positive traits as exemplary members and ambassadors of the Booth community. The award provides a scholarship and matches each recipient with a successful Booth graduate as a mentor.
In addition, the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund provides a full-tuition scholarship for the second year of study for a Booth student, who is also paired with an alumni mentor.
