Attend the information session to learn from Brent Packer ’15, 2014 Clee Scholar, about management consulting, His McKinsey summer experience and tips on developing a strong application, as well as the Interview process.

The Gilbert Clee Scholarship is awarded annually to a member of the junior class to receive a summer internship at McKinsey & Co. and career guidance from a representative of McKinsey & Company, an international management consulting firm. Friends and associates of Gilbert Harrison Clee, Wesleyan class of 1935 and the late President of the Board of Trustees of Wesleyan University, established the Scholarship in his memory.

To be eligible, an individual must have demonstrated high standards of leadership, a deep commitment to Wesleyan University.
 A specific objective will be to select an individual who exemplifies the qualities that characterized Gilbert Harrison Clee as a humane person and as a leader.

Selection will be made without reference to financial need. The Clee Scholar will receive an initial $1000 prize and be eligible for an annual scholarship grant based on financial need. The award also includes career guidance by a representative of McKinsey and Company, an international management consulting firm. McKinsey's representative will work with the Clee Scholar during the latter's junior year to develop a summer program based on a self-supporting job, usually outside of the United States. Travel costs will be covered, if necessary, from the Scholarship Fund. In the event that the remuneration from the job does not provide complete coverage of the living expenses, a supplementary stipend will be provided.

The application deadline is Tuesday, October 28.
