$150,000 Donated to Fogelman College to Establish Student Travel Enrichment Fund
Morgan Morton, a Fogelman College alumnus and supporter, will donate $150,000 over the course of five years to support the newly-formed Morgan Morton FCBE Student Travel Enrichment Fund. This fund is designed to stimulate international and domestic travel for undergraduate, masters and Ph.D. business students. Priority will be given for international travel and to undergraduate students in their final year of study. The travel fund is intended to enhance students’ learning about businesses (both for-profit and not-for-profit) and to further their professional development.  A selection committee appointed by the Dean’s office will select from the applicants based on merit, and also determine the amount of monetary support the student will receive. The estimated amount of support per student will be between $500 and $1000. However, this amount may change based upon the demand for funding, and generally, higher amounts will be awarded for international travel. Students who are selected to receive travel funds will be required to submit a written report or make a presentation detailing the learning experiences of the trip upon return. Students may travel individually or as a group, but must be in good academic standing with the University. The purpose of individual travel may include attending conferences, travelling for internships or studying abroad. Group travel, for example, may include travelling for case competitions. University faculty and staff may be eligible to use this fund, but only if a chaperone is deemed necessary for student learning.
 
To apply for Morgan Morton Student Travel Enrichment Funds, please complete the following application. In addition to the application, please include
  • One-page description of the trip, including learning objectives
  • Current resume
  • A letter of recommendation from a Fogelman College faculty or staff member.

Please drop off applications addressed to Dr. Kierulff at the reception desk of the Graduate Programs Office in the Fogelman College Admin Building, during normal business hours (8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday).
