The Opportunity

Competitive financial aid strengthens Wharton’s ability to attract and enroll the best business students, irrespective of need.

The Request

Contribute to the establishment of an MBA student support fund for African-Americans. This fund will continue to make Wharton an attractive and viable option to top African-American admitted students who seek financial support.

My Wharton experience will help me achieve the life I want and allow me to be a strong contributor to the world I want to see.”
