Executive Education Scholarships

Organizations and communities flourish when leadership is inclusive and brings together broad perspectives. Carlson Executive Education seeks to open new opportunities for business leaders and promote diversity in the business community. Our scholarships remove barriers so that professionals from groups who are traditionally underrepresented in executive development programs can prepare for the next levels of leadership. 

Scholarships may be applied to any Carlson Executive Education short program.
