Applying for a Phil Hauck Scholarship for Nonprofit Leaders

A longtime champion of the local economy, Phil Hauck is also a strong supporter of nonprofit agencies in the region, and the Phil Hauck Scholarship for Nonprofit Leaders has been established in recognition of that.

The scholarship will cover half the cost of tuition for an individual pursuing an MBA through the Schneider School, or half the cost of the core program of the Center for Exceptional Leadership.

If you’d like to help grow this scholarship fund and make high-quality developmental programming available to nonprofits, please consider a donation.


Applicants must be employed by a nonprofit, and, if applying for the CEL, must also be in a leadership role. Applications are due by July 1 and December 1.
