The Stacia L. Wood Social Impact Summer Grants (SISG) provides financial support to MBA students utilizing business skills during their summer internship within organizations that make a positive social impact.

The grants will supplement the salaries of UNC Kenan-Flagler MBA students who take qualified positions using business core competencies in organizations that otherwise could not afford to pay for an MBA intern. Students will enhance the capacity of the host organization to make a long-term positive impact on the community and/or industry while also raising awareness about social and environmental impact strategies at UNC Kenan-Flagler.

The 2014-15 Net Impact Club, in partnership with the Full-Time MBA Program and the Ackerman Center for Excellence in Sustainability, launched SISG as a way to better support students interested in making a positive impact with their business careers, to demonstrate UNC Kenan-Flagler’s commitment to its Core Values, and to strengthen UNC Kenan-Flagler’s positioning among the best sustainability-focused MBA programs.
