USEF and Dow Jones/WSJ Scholarship Winners Announced
Dayton, Ohio – August 4 – The University Sales Education Foundation (USEF) announces the winners of $9,000 in scholarships sponsored by Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal. Mitchel Huber and Garret Iden, both seniors and members of the Global Sales Leadership Society at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, and Claire Lee, a senior at University of Washington’s Michael G. Foster School of Business, will each receive $3,000.00 toward their sales education.
The recipients were recognized for their pursuit of sales education and their responses to three questions about themselves and the sales profession. Forty-four students from sixteen universities applied for the three awards by the June 30th deadline.
With over 50% of university graduates accepting positions in the sales profession, the USEF and Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal recognize the importance of a quality sales education.
