Nonprofit Scholarship Program

April 20, 2018:  Ed Shartar has led another successful year helping to give local nonprofit leaders access to executive education courses at Harvard Business School.

Ed is Chairman of the Harvard Business School Club of Atlanta’s Social Enterprise Initiative (SEI) scholarships – an annual program that gives full scholarships to attend HBS summer programs.  Since its inception in 1997, the HBS Club of Atlanta has awarded more than 80 outstanding nonprofit leaders in Georgia with these scholarships.

The SEI scholarship recipients who will attend Harvard Business School courses this summer are:

  • Katie Hayes, Executive Director, Community Farmers Markets
  • Norene Mostkoff, CEO, Visiting Nurse Health System
  • Camille Naughton, VP of Advancement & Corporate Partnerships, Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School
  • Heather Rowles, Executive Director, Multi Agency Alliance for Children
  • James Franklin, CEO, TechBridge  (not in photo)

“Educating leaders who make a difference in the world is the foundation of our School’s mission,” says Ed Shartar.  “And the leaders recognized for this year’s SEI scholarship are doing exactly that. We are honored to have the opportunity to recognize and give back to these incredible individuals.”
