Women in Leadership Program

The Women in Leadership Program aims to reduce the gender gap in leadership through three strategies: mentoring, training, and leadership projects. In last year's pilot leadership course program, 10 students were joined by committed mentors and guest speakers. Despite the pandemic, five students created meaningful leadership projects for non-profit partners. This year's program will serve 20 undergraduate business and MBA students and includes a wider community through dedicated courses and speaker series..

CBE Scholarships

CBE Scholarships help our business students afford the costs of college. Currently, East Bay's $7k tuition, coupled with basic living expenses, means $20k in expenses each year. Scholarships reduce students’ need for paid work, giving them more time to focus on academics, reduce their debt load, and help keep them in college during times of financial duress. Learn more about CBE Scholarships.

“It is a huge relief knowing this scholarship allows me to focus on my education. I am grateful to have this financial support so I can pursue my goals with all my energy.” – Landry Walker, BS ’20 Economics
