2019 Schottland Scholars

2019 Schottland Scholars in Rochester, NY 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Schottland Scholars is a prestigious leadership program designed for highly motivated business students. The program aims to connect scholars to business and organizational leaders who have made a difference not only in their businesses but in the community as well.  Each year a small group of approximately ten School of Business seniors are selected to become Schottland Scholars after undergoing a rigorous application and interview process. The program provides the Scholars with opportunities to build relationships with business leaders and mentors, including Schottland alumni, in a variety of professional and networking engagements throughout the course of the year. The Schottland Scholars program hopes to inspire and resource the next generation of business leaders.

MISSION

For the scholars to develop skills to become outstanding in the areas of ethical awareness, global awareness, problem solving, and effective communication so that they will succeed in becoming future business leaders.

  • Dinner and Organizational Site Visits: Scholars take part in dinner meetings and site visits between 12-15 times during each academic semester; meetings typically feature leaders of Charleston’s largest and most impactful organizations, such as Charleston Regional Development Alliance, InterTech, CACVB, AstenJohnson, Santee Cooper, Urban Electric, Water Mission, and more.
