The Goizueta Foundation Fellowship at Georgia Tech was made possible by The Goizueta Foundation, established by Roberto C. Goizueta, the late CEO and chairman of the board of directors of The Coca-Cola Company. The fellowship is designed to increase the number of students of Hispanic/Latino origin who enroll at Georgia Tech to pursue their doctoral studies.
A limited number of fellowships are awarded each academic year. Fellowship recipients will bring exemplary levels of scholarship and innovation to the academic departments that host their study and research. Each of The Goizueta Foundation Fellows will be asked to participate in stewardship activities.
- Must be a new or current graduate student admitted to a Georgia Tech doctoral program.
- Must be enrolled as a full-time student.
- Must be of Hispanic/Latino heritage with family residing in the United States (i.e., not an international student planning to move abroad upon graduation).
