In 2018, C200 created the C200 Reachout Scholar Awards at Chicago Booth. These three $10,000 awards support Booth students with demonstrated commitment to entrepreneurship, innovation, social impact, and the advancement of women.
Current Chicago Booth students must apply online to be considered. Recipients of the fellowship will be announced at an invite-only event in the spring.
Applications are now open for 2020. The application deadline is March 4, 2020.
A reception and dinner to honor recipients of this award will take place on Thursday, April 2 from 5:30 – 8:30 pm at Harper Court in Downtown Hyde Park. All applicants are invited to attend this event, so please plan accordingly. It will surely be a great opportunity to network with the women of C200!
Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee, made up of representatives from the Polsky Center and faculty from Chicago Booth. The committee will determine the recipients of this award based on the following criteria:
- Demonstrated commitment to entrepreneurship, innovation, social impact, and the advancement of women.
- Involvement in entrepreneurial programming at Chicago Booth and around the Chicago community.
- Defined goals for their use of funds.
- Additional compensation will be taken into account.
