GHR FELLOWS PROGRAM

For Future Business Leaders Who Want to Change the World

Tommies are Changemakers. We make positive societal impacts to address social problems, drive change and advance the common good.

That's why the GHR Foundation has partnered with the St. Thomas Opus College of Business to create the GHR Fellows program. The program reflects the vision of GHR Foundation founder Gerry Rauenhorst, who believed that entrepreneurial creativity inspires solutions that improve lives.

The GHR Fellow program is designed for students from across the world who share this vision and will provide them with the resources, skills and leadership development they need to make it a reality.

GHR Fellows receive:

  • Full tuition and fees for four years (and may, pending demonstrated financial need, receive grant funds that cover room and board)
  • A fully funded study abroad experience
  • Customized professional coaching and mentorship
  • Leadership development opportunities and internships with Fortune 500 business executives and community leaders
