$150,000 Donated to Fogelman College to Establish Student Travel Enrichment Fund
For release: June 20, 2012
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 and specific courses
to be taken
- Current resume
- A letter of recommendation from a Fogelman College faculty or staff member.
Please submit all four (4) documents to Shelley Bennett for review.
Please drop off applications addressed to Shelley Bennett at the reception desk of
the Undergraduate Student Services Office in the Fogelman College Admin Building,
during normal business hours (8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday).
