Kenneth R. Meyer, University of Notre Dame alumnus and retired chairman and CEO of Lincoln Capital Management Co., has made a $10 million gift to his alma mater to fund MBA program fellowships, the school announced this week. The gift will be matched with university funding for a total of $20 million.
The Kenneth R. Meyer Fellowships will be part of the newly established Meyer Family Center for MBA Studies in the Mendoza College of Business. The center also will sponsor an annual guest lecture focusing on ethical business leadership and will participate in ethics orientation sessions offered to all incoming MBA students.
Meyer’s gift and the university matching funds will support 16 fellowships annually: eight fellowships for admitted applicants in each two-year MBA class. The initial fellowships will be awarded to first-year students for the 2011-12 academic year.
