Each year, the Herbert V. Prochnow Educational Foundation awards GSB scholarships based on admission requirements as determined by the IBA. Each scholarship covers one-third of the annual cost with the institution responsible for the remaining amount of this three year program. Established in 1983 as a supporting organization to the GSB, the foundation supports research in banking education, and sponsors a number of educational programs and activities.
The Wisconsin School of Business’ Center for Professional and Executive Development has partnered with GSB-Wisconsin to provide the prestigious Certificate of Executive Leadership to GSB graduates upon completion of the rigorous program.
Value: $4,500 awarded to two IBA Member recipients
($1,500 per year, applicable to first year students only)
