The R. Gene Richter Scholarship Program is specifically designed for undergraduate students who have been identified as the future leaders of supply chain management. The program not only provides tuition assistance, but also introduces scholars to industry leaders who will serve as their mentors.
The program is funded through both the R. Gene and Nancy D. Richter Foundation and the Institute for Supply Management (ISM), and has had a total of 86 recipients since it began in 2004. It is currently the largest national scholarship program in the field of supply management, and has served as a valuable opportunity to pave the way for the future of supply chain management.
The 2016 scholars will be recognized during ISM’s annual supply chain conference, ISM2016; held in Indianapolis May 15-18th. The conference is the premier supply chain event of the year featuring various keynote speakers, panel sessions, and networking opportunities to bring together forward-thinking supply chain professionals. During the event, the scholars will also be paired with their mentors and have a chance to network with various supply chain professionals who will be coming to collaborate with like-minded peers.
Source One Management Services, the sponsor of Exec IN, an exclusive event being held during the annual conference, is looking forward to honoring these six scholarship recipients, in addition to taking advantage of the many educational and networking opportunities the upcoming conference offers! From keynote speakers including Alan Mullaly, CEO of Ford Motor Company, to signature sessions focusing on supply management best practices, and new ways to deal with the future of procurement, ISM2016 is an event that you won’t want to miss!
