Siebel Scholars Program
MIT’s School of Engineering and Sloan School of Management have been members of the Siebel Scholars program since it was established by the Siebel Foundation in 2000. The program recognizes the most talented students at leading graduate schools of engineering and business around the world.
Over the past eight years, the Siebel Scholars program has created a community of over 540 scholars—55 of them from the School of Engineering—whose personal leadership, academic achievement, and collaborations are providing solutions to pressing societal problems. Traditionally awarded to exceptional students in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, in 2009, the Siebel Scholars program was expanded to include the Department of Biological Engineering at MIT.
The Siebel Scholars program brings together the new Siebel Scholars and Siebel Scholar alumni at the annual Siebel Scholars conference. Here, they form a unique community in which they share their energy, knowledge, and talent with some of the world’s most prestigious thought-leaders to the benefit of all. There is no end to what these scholars, the best and brightest in their fields, can achieve individually and as a community.
The Siebel Scholars program is funded by a grant from the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation. Established as a private foundation in 1996, the Siebel Foundation is a nonprofit, public benefit corporation. Its mission is to support projects and organizations that work to improve the quality of life, environment, and education of its community members. The Siebel Foundation funds projects to support the homeless and underprivileged, educational and research programs, methamphetamine abuse prevention, and alternative energy solutions.
