EMBA Student Wins $14,000 Scholarship
Elizabeth Clarke (EMBA ’20) decided to pursue an EMBA because she was looking to build a stronger breadth of business management knowledge and create new expansion opportunities in her current career.
“The Kellogg-Schulich EMBA Program was particularly compelling to me because of the truly global perspective,” she shared. “What surprised me the most was the opportunity to meet business executives from all over the world. I know I will have long-lasting connections with many talented, diverse and motivated people. The quality of the teaching, availability of electives around the world and the chance to learn from my colleagues have been truly impressive. It has been a life-changing experience.”
As the 2019 recipient of the Franklin & Sasarman Simard Scholarship, Clarke is absolutely thrilled and grateful for the $14,000 in financial assistance.
This entrance scholarship is awarded each year to a female EMBA student, preferably from the non-profit sector. “I am passionate about actively supporting women in their careers and the importance of women in leadership, so this makes the award even more personally meaningful.”
The Franklin & Sasarman Simard Scholarship Endowment Fund was established at the Schulich School of Business in February 2008 by Dr. Laurence “Larry” Franklin and his wife Mei Kwong Franklin and by Kellogg-Schulich EMBA alumnus Michael Sasarman and his wife Martine Simard Dupuy.
