Kalypso MGIM Innovators Scholarship

Rewarding Master of Global Innovation Management (MGIM) students who demonstrate excellence in innovation and academics


History of Scholarship

In 2011, a group of consultants at the global innovation consulting firm, Kalypso, decided to turn another commonality - degrees from North Carolina State University - into an opportunity for future Wolfpack Alumni. In order to provide financial aid opportunities for fellow members of the Pack and funnel quality individuals into the consulting world, this group established the Wolfpack Innovators Scholarship for undergraduates and the Wolfpack MGIM Innovators Scholarship for Masters of Global Innovation Management (MGIM) students.

Since 2013, the Stelos Alliance, in partnership with Kalypso, has awarded annual scholarships for MGIM students demonstrating excellence in innovation and academics. Two scholarships in the amount of $2,000 to qualified applicants from the MGIM program at NC State University.
