The Academy of Marketing Science’s (AMS) Harold & Muriel Berkman Charitable Foundation, Inc® (the Foundation) has announced scholarship opportunities for 2017.
The Foundation exists to pursue the Berkmans’ longstanding dedication and commitment to higher education in the United States, particularly higher education preparing future business leaders and promoting the growth of knowledge into effective business and administration.
The information below from AMS describes the eligibility and aims of the scholarships.
The Foundation will award up to 40-45 $1,000 scholarships. Scholarships are limited to U.S. Citizens who are matriculating in a university accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). A Selection Committee of the Foundation will recommend recipients to the Foundation Board based on applications submitted to the Board. Scholarships will be awarded in two categories:
(1) The Foundation will award scholarships to worthy students choosing to pursue a graduate or undergraduate degree in marketing.
(2) Given the particular interest in supporting the education of U.S. Veterans, the Foundation seeks to award scholarships to U.S. Veterans and especially seeks students holding a Combat Infantry Badge, suffered a serious injury due to combat action (such as a missing limb), received a Purple Heart, served or continue to serve with honor and distinction, or were honorably discharged from military service.
Candidates pursuing scholarships on the latter basis need not be majoring in marketing or business as a condition of candidacy for a scholarship. Applications must be submitted after May 1, 2017 but before August 29, 2017.
