Jack and Doris Fouse Scholarship

Dr. Jacqualyn Fouse (BA ’82, MA ’84 Economics, and Ph.D. ’12) has generously funded The Jack and Doris Fouse Scholarship for Study Abroad in honor of her parents. She is the Chief Executive Officer at Agios Pharmaceuticals and strongly believes in the value of international experience. It was Dr. Fouse’s high school trip to France that set her on the path of a global career in international business. Her career has taken her around the world many times over; she is fluent in several languages and has lived overseas for significant portions of her working life.

The scholarship is competitive and based on academic merit and achievements. Financial need will also be a consideration. The scholarship will help support a one-time study abroad travel for College of Business students, with priority given to those majoring in International Business. It will also provide a shorter international experience for students in the Goolsby Leadership Academy. The amount of the award varies.

The College of Business enables students to reach the highest level of academic excellence. We believe that a study abroad experience is critical in developing an understanding of the world around us. These international experiences will complement the academic experience we provide, and will open new worlds and horizons.
