The Emerging Markets Institute Fellows program offers a unique experience for bright and motivated Johnson MBA students to engage in coursework, study trips and international exchanges, and creative projects while becoming an integral part of the Institute. Fellows candidates are competitively selected from our full time residential MBA program via an application process during the first semester of study at Johnson. Fellows candidates network with Johnson alumni, guest speakers, and corporate partners while contributing to the growth and development of the Institute.
For more information on applying to the fellows program please read the EMI Fellows Program or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Fellows can avail themselves of the Cañizares Fund and Cunningham fund during their studies.
The Cañizares Fund provided through the generosity of Roberto Cañizares, BS’71. MBA ’74, provides a subsidy for a summer internship in the emerging markets and also provides travel monies for international case competitions.
The Cunningham Fund was established in the memory of Foster S. Cunningham, AB ’54, MBA ’55, who died unexpectedly in 1978. The fund provides from $1,000 to $1,500 towards study trips, so long as the student is not receiving any other financial aid. A Fellow can only receive one Cunningham award during his or her study. To apply you must send your cv and a half-page essay with your academic performance and the trek you want to participate, stating that you are not receiving other funding. Please send you applications via email to email@example.com by November 15 for the winter treks and by February 15 for the spring treks. You will receive a response to your request two weeks after the deadline to submit your application. As we have a limited number of funds we are not able to award funding for all of the applicants. Funds are awarded based on merit and need.
If you are awarded funding for your trek you need to submit a 600-word essay about the business environment or company you visited and will be reimbursed after your trek is done. In addition, we encourage Fellows that have received this fund to pay these funds back at a future date when they feel they are able. In this manner, the fund will replenish itself.
A limited number of these awards are available each year only to EMI fellows.
