Last year, the Yale School of Management launched a new scholarship for students of African American, Hispanic American, and Native American descent. Made possible through a generous gift of alumnus Thomas Matlack SOM '91, the Megunticook Scholars Program selects two first-year MBA candidates each year who demonstrate a core intent to give back to their communities. The award covers full tuition for the two years of the Yale MBA program.
