Siebel Scholars

The Siebel Foundation in 2000 to recognize the most talented students at the world’s leading graduate schools of business, computer science, and bioengineering. The Siebel Scholars community, consisting of over 750 individuals, fosters personal leadership, academic achievement, and the collaborative search for solutions to pressing societal problems.

Funding for the Siebel Scholars program was established through grants totaling more than $45 million. Thirteen leading universities were selected for the program and each received more than $2 million in grants. Each year, five outstanding graduate students from each institution are honored as Siebel Scholars. Siebel Scholars are selected by the Deans of each school on the basis of outstanding academic performance and qualities of leadership to receive a $35,000 award. The specific process varies from school to school.

Annual Siebel Scholars Conference

A key element of the program is the annual Siebel Scholars Conference. Each year, current and past Scholars convene at the annual Conference to form a unique community in which knowledge, energy, and talent are shared. The Scholars, university faculty, and some of the world’s most prestigious thought-leaders gather to discuss and debate global issues, searching for solutions to today’s most pressing challenges. It is an opportunity for the future leaders in the fields of computer science and business to learn from those who currently influence the technologies, policies, and economic and social decisions that shape the future.
