The Cintas Graduate Ethics Fellowship

For Graduate Business Students

Scholarship to support ethics related education for business students

Introduction

The Cintas Graduate Ethics Fellowship (CGEF) was established to help WCB graduate students enhance their exposure to Leadership, Ethics, Governance and Sustainability, and the Values Based Leadership Concentration. Applicants must be accepted into Xavier's MBA, and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher, in the MBA program. Students who are enrolled in, or registered for, at least two MBA electives that have Leadership, Ethics, Governance or Sustainability as one of its main themes, may apply for the CGEF. During the course of the Fellowship, CGEFs will be expected to complete the Values Based Leadership concentration, attend ethics related events sponsored by the Cintas Institute for Business Ethics, as well as complete a creative expression project.  This project may be a painting, sculpture, video or other creative work, designed by the CGEF, and approved by the Co-Directors of the Cintas Institute for Business Ethics.  Fellows may complete the project themselves, or use outside resources to execute their ideas.  Reasonable support for the outside resources (artists, sculptors, videographers), are available for funding, after budgetary approval by the Co-Directors of the Cintas Institute for Business Ethics.

CGEF may receive one of the two following reimbursements:

CGEF participating in the London – Paris International Ethics course, taught during spring break, can receive a reimbursement for 90% of the expenses for the trip.  In 2016, the projected expenses are $4,000, so the reimbursement, after the completion of all CGEF requirements, would be $3,600 (90% of $4,000).  Students would not be reimbursed the tuition cost for this, or any ethics related course,

or

2.  CGEF not participating in the London-Paris International Ethics course, could receive a reimbursement for the tuition portion of a three (3) hour elective course related to Leadership, Ethics, Governance or Sustainability.  In addition to this reimbursement, CGEF are invited to attend an Ethics Conference, sponsored by the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics.  Reasonable expenses for airfare, hotel, registration, and meals will be reimbursed by the Cintas Institute for Business Ethics.

Under either situation, reimbursements will occur after the completion of all coursework for the Values Based Leadership Concentration, and other Fellowship requirements.
