Funded by an endowment established by Charles Lofgren Sr. ’27 in 1984.

Congratulations to Moshe E. Lavi ’11 and Karmini Sampath ’09, this year’s recipients of the Alumni Business Fellowship. Lavi, who majored in history, and Karmini, who majored in English, will use their fellowships to pursue MBAs at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

The Alumni Business Fellowship is an unusual opportunity for Carleton Alumni who are strongly committed to a business career and who are at the point where a mid-career educational opportunity could transform a career.

The Fellowships are intended to encourage alumni to consider educational opportunities that might not be possible under other circumstances. Full-time study or intensive programs such as an executive MBA are two options frequently proposed in previous competitions. In addition, part-time study intended as a program, rather than an occasional course, may also be seen as appropriate by the selection committee. Fellowships typically cover all or a portion of tuition, fees, and related costs for up to two years of study.

These Fellowships are primarily intended for Carleton alumni who are already committed to a business career and who wish to undertake an intensive program of mid-career education in order to transform their careers by expanding their potential leadership roles within the for-profit sector of the economy.
