“The generosity of donors has acted as a quiet reminder to me to be the best person I can — I want to make them proud.”

Tony Pino (MBA 2016)
HBS Fund for Leadership and Innovation

“The fellowship was helpful in making decisions for my life in the sense that by minimizing my student loan burden, I was able to really pursue the career that I was most excited about.”

Josue Zapata (MD/MBA 2012), Chief Resident, Internal Medicine, University of California, San Francisco
Frist (MBA 1997, MBA 2001) Family Financial Aid Fund

“I received a small grant from a planned gift, and I’ve often thought how inspired it was so many years ago that somebody thought to encourage more management skills in the social sector.”

Margaret Crotty (MBA 2000), CEO, Partnership with Children
Horace W. Goldsmith Fellowship Program for Not-for-Profit Management Harvard Business School Club of Greater New York Financial Aid Fund George and Edith Weed Willman Fund

“It would have been difficult for me to attend HBS without this fellowship. I have also benefited indirectly from others who are here because of financial aid. It is not just about you as an individual — it is about the group as a whole.”

Tim Massey (MBA 2016)
Colin Taylor (MBA 1990) and Family Fellowship Edmund (MBA 1964) and Barbara Hajim Financial Aid Fund

In “A Chance to Lead,” four alumni who received fellowships discuss the impact of that support as they strive to make a difference in the world. (8 min. video)
