The Carlson Global Institute thanks its Advisory Council for their pledge of more than $10,000 toward a new scholarship that supports Carlson School students seeking the international experience best suited to them.

“Over the years, we have had the opportunity to hear directly from students about the impact studying abroad has had on them—more confidence in and a better understanding of their own culture and others, awareness of multiple perspectives in approaching and solving problems, and the ability to adapt to changing environments and situations,” says Patrick McGinnis, Vice President and General Manager, Exclusive Brands, Best Buy and Carlson Global Institute Advisory Board Member. “Hearing the passion of their experiences and their plans to learn more and consider new opportunities
is inspiring—we as an Advisory Council want to continue to encourage this transformational learning, especially as we hire these future leaders for our organizations.”

The first round of scholarships will be awarded this fall.
