NYU Stern Scholarships
Harvey Beker Scholarship
The Harvey Beker Scholarship program was established in 2005 by Harvey Beker, MBA 1975. For Fall 2011, three $10,000 Beker scholarships will be awarded to first-year, full-time MBA students.

Within five years of graduation, the Beker Scholars ideally will begin to share their success and start giving back to Stern. Thus, they will enable future students to excel and succeed.
