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

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 M.B.A. 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.
