GE Foundation renews UAB Business scholarship program

The UAB Collat School of Business received a $100,000 grant renewal from the General Electric (GE) Foundation to fund for three years the GE Industrial Distribution Minority Scholarship, which was established in 2008 with an initial GE Foundation gift to the Department of Marketing, Industrial Distribution and Economics. The scholarship benefits sophomores, juniors and seniors in the Industrial Distribution program, gifting $4,000 annually to individual recipients to help cover tuition costs.

Since 2008, the GE Industrial Distribution Minority Scholarship has benefited 17 students in UAB Collat School of Business.
