Welch Scholars


The Jack Welch Scholars Program is comprised of Welch College of Business (WCOB) students who possess business and entrepreneurial values, as well as a demonstrated commitment to personal and professional development. The Welch Scholars program is intended to provide financial support to students who demonstrate an interest in varied fields of business.

As the best and brightest of the WCOB, our Welch Scholars will represent the WCOB at various events and programs throughout the year. Welch Scholars serve as liaisons to the incoming class of freshmen, and partake in the Junior Mentor program. Welch Scholars also collaborate on a project to be chosen by the WCOB Faculty, and present the findings of the project at the end of the year etiquette banquet.
