Celebrate 25 Years By Giving Back!

It's hard to believe that it has been 25 years since we walked the halls of Posner Hall. In honor of this special milestone and in memory of our GSIA experience and education, let's join together in support of the Tepper School.

This year we are challenging our class to reach 30% class gift participation! We need your help to meet our goal of 84 Class of 1998 Tepper School donors.

Congratulations…challenge fulfilled! The Class of 1998 Reunion Committee challenged our class to get 40 classmates to contribute to the class fund between November 28 and December 31, 2022. Thanks to the generosity of many of you, we were able to fulfill the challenge and unlock $25,000 from the committee in honor of our 25th Reunion!

Fundraising Progress

  • Goal: 84 donors

GSIA Class of 1998 Campaign

By contributing to our class gift campaign, your generosity will provide essential support to the Tepper School Fellowships.

Last year, 508 graduate students received financial aid through  Tepper School Fellowships and other awards, making a Tepper School education possible for our diverse and high-quality students by reducing the financial burden of tuition.

While we know the Tepper MBA is worth it, the rising cost of tuition can make attending a high caliber business school like Tepper out of reach without acquiring significant student loan debt. Fellowships help to reduce the amount of debt MBAs will graduate with, making the program more accessible to deserving students.

Help our GSIA Class of 1998 leave a positive legacy for current and future students by making a class gift contribution today.
