The GSBS "50 For 50" Initiative!
The "GSBS 50 for 50" is an alumni-led initiative to raise $50,000 in graduate program specific support to celebrate the 50th
Anniversary of the GSBS in 2019. Ideally, the initiative will result in
the establishment of a graduate program specific endowment for every
graduate training program in the GSBS.
