Siebel Systems made the announcement Oct. 3 in The Wall
This is the second year that Siebel Systems has endowed 11
leading graduate schools of business and computer science
with funds to support five scholarships of $25,000 annually
at each school. Students are selected on the basis of academic
and leadership excellence.
The purpose of the Siebel Scholars organization is threefold:
to recognize graduate students who demonstrate the highest
levels of academic achievement and leadership; to support
the graduate programs at universities that have made great
contributions to the information technology industry, business
and society; and to create a unique community of individuals
who will provide one another with professional support throughout
Said Kellogg's dean, Dipak Jain: "This honor from Siebel
Systems is another indication of the quality of our students
and their dedication to excellence. We are proud of our students'
achievement and are especially pleased that these students
can share their leadership skills with their Kellogg peers."
The Siebel awards were presented at a conference in Boston
on Nov. 2-4. Keynote speakers this year included General Norman
H. Schwarzkopf and Benjamin Netanyahu.
