Siebel scholars logo

Five students in the 2017 class at Kellogg — including MMM students Jonathan Goldstein and Bo Gustafsson — have been named 2017 Siebel Scholars. Goldstein and Gustafsson will each receive a $35,000 award for their final year of graduate studies.

The awards recognize top students from the world’s most prestigious business, computer science, bioengineering and energy science graduate programs, and scholars are chosen based on outstanding academic performance and leadership. On average, Siebel Scholars rank in the top 5 percent of their class, many within the top 1 percent.

The two MMM students inducted into the Class of 2017 Siebel Scholars demonstrate this academic rigor, as well as a commitment to innovation, entrepreneurship and social impact.
