The Summer Harris Scholarship for Marketing and/or Fashion, established in May 2017 by Rob Harris, founder and president of Pacific Market International, made it possible for Bryce Wilson ’19 to attend the Panamanian Kalu Yala Institute last summer and will support five students in the summer of 2018.
The Finance Award, established last year by an anonymous donor, enables three freshmen or sophomore Global Business students to spend nine weeks studying finance intensively at the London School of Economics. In 2017, then-freshmen Elvis Begić ’20, Giselle Martinez ’20, and I received the scholarship, which will support sophomores Hunter Adamo ’20, Kirk

In addition to scholarships, opportunities for Global Business students are provided by the Wilke Career Pathways Program, endowed by U of R Trustee and Global Business Advisory Board member Chuck Wilke ’64, in which students network with the program’s alumni in diverse fields. Dozens of donors also contribute to a Global Business Student Success fund, which also supports the program’s students in a variety of engaging ways throughout the year.
