DAVID BERG FAMILY ENDOWMENT FUND GRANTS
These scholarships are provided by a generous gift from University of Pittsburgh alum David Berg, through the David Berg Foundation. Via the David Berg Family Endowment Fund, these scholarships are administered through the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership within the School of Business. They support undergraduate, graduate or doctoral level students on the Oakland campus while they devote themselves to completing an academic program or conducting a project related to the use of ethics to solve problems in the business world as they exist today or in the future. Qualified students will received up to $5000 per year. In extraordinary cases, an amount in greater than $5000 may be awarded. Special consideration will be given to students who are participating in the University’s Jewish Studies program, students pursuing the Certificate in Ethics and Leadership from the College of Business Administration (CBA), students pursuing the Summer Edge in Ethics and Leadership in Business and Society, doctoral students engaged in research on ethics, and for those students with financial need who are somehow engaged in programs, projects, or courses related to ethics and business.
Scholarships will be awarded to undergraduate, graduate or doctoral level students who are involved in one of the following:
1) Acceptance to an academic program or certificate offering by the University of Pittsburgh that is expressly related to the use of ethics to solve problems in the business world or within the broader society.
2) Preparation of articles, papers, theses or dissertations related to the use of ethics to solve problems in the business world or within the broader society.
3) Participation in conferences, competitions or academic meetings related to the use of ethics to solve problems in the business world or within the broader society.
4) Participation in experience-based learning programs or projects to the use of ethics to solve problems in the business world or within the broader society.
5) Summer research project sponsored by a University faculty member related to the use of ethics to solve problems in the business world or within the broader society.
Berg Scholarship awardees are required to document the outcome of their work via letter, summary report or copy of published paper or presentation submitted to the Berg Center. Students are also expected to participate in or attend special events, lectures, workshops, etc. initiated by the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership that are relevant to their project, program or research activity.
Fellows are selected on the basis of their academic record, the originality and promise of their proposed project (which may be analytic or purely creative), and their willingness to help create and participate in an interdisciplinary community of students. A clear connection between the study of ethics in business and society is required. In addition, support from a program or faculty advisor for research or experience-based projects is required. The deadline for submitting applications for support is March 29th, 2013 by 5pm (EST).
