The Summer Venture in Management (SVMP) Fellowship provides annual awards of $10,000 to MBA students who participated in SVMP. Started in 1982, SVMP is a one-week residential education program for college students designed to increase diversity and opportunity in business education.

SVMP is geared toward students who:

  • Identify as a member of a group that is currently underrepresented in business schools and corporate America (e.g. African American, Latino, Native American, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender);
  • Are the first family member to attend college, or from a family with little business education or experience;
  • Or attend a school whose graduates are underrepresented in business (e.g. community colleges or minority-serving institutions).
