Five Kellogg School students named 2005 Siebel Scholars
10/1/2004 - Kellogg School students Michael Baird, Joshua Bennett, Philip Enan, Shannon Hennessy and Ukonwa Uwimana have been selected as 2005 Siebel Scholars. They each receive a $25,000 scholarship, to be applied to tuition costs and expenses, from Siebel Systems Inc., an eBusiness applications software company based in San Mateo, Calif.
The students were chosen for their “outstanding academic records and their impressive contributions to both the classroom environment and to student life at the Kellogg School,” said Robert A. Korajczyk, senior associate dean of curriculum and teaching at the school. “Each scholar was nominated by at least one and as many as three of Kellogg’s six academic departments, which is a tribute to the students’ abilities to excel in multiple areas.”
Baird is Kellogg Student Association (KSA) vice president for technology. Bennett is co-chair of the Kellogg Film Club. Enan is a KSA section representative and a member of the Bottom Line a cappella group. Hennessy is academic co-chair of Day at Kellogg and a KSA section representative. Uwimana is co-chair of the 2004 Kellogg Marketing Conference and a KSA section representative.
The Siebel Scholars program was established in 2001 by Siebel Systems to recognize the five most talented students at each of the leading graduate schools of business and computer science after the completion of their first year. All Siebel Scholars have GPAs in the top 10 percent of their class.
The Siebel Scholars program recognizes graduate students’ achievement and leadership, and supports graduate-level programs that have made significant contributions to the information technology industry and society. The program also strives to create a community of individuals to share knowledge, engage in innovative projects and provide professional support to members throughout their careers.
In addition to the Kellogg School, the other schools in the Siebel Scholars program are Carnegie Mellon University, Harvard Business School, Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford Graduate School of Business, University of California at Berkeley, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
