New Donor-Funded Scholarships at Ross

Thanks to generous gifts to Foundations for Success — our ongoing initiative to boost funding for student support and learning experiences at Ross — we have been able to establish dozens of new donor-funded scholarships at the school. That means more students will have access to a world-class business education at Michigan Ross. More students will have opportunities to participate in our unique learning experiences. And more students will develop the skills, knowledge, and acumen needed to become the next generation of Leaders & Best.
