Four MBA Students Named Investment Banking Fellows

Four full-time MBA students from the class of 2011 have been awarded Haas Investment Banking Fellowships, which will cover part of their tuition and match them with alumni mentors.

The fellows are Ben Avenia-Tapper, James Chan, Ryan Critchfield, and Sam Snyder. The students were selected in a competitive process based on their knowledge and commitment to careers in investment banking, their relevant experience, and their ability to present themselves as strong candidates for the field.

The fellowship program is now in its fourth year. Students receive a $5,000 tuition credit, renewable during their second year following successful summer internships in the field, as well as a subsidy for school-organized treks to Wall Street or Hong Kong. The fellows also get preference in finance courses and paired with alumni at investment banks in both the US and abroad, who serve as mentors.
The fellowships are funded by the CJ White Scholarship Fund. The selection committee included current fellows as well as
representatives from the admissions, student services, and career services offices.
