George F. Baker Scholars Program
Baker means business.
The Baker Scholars Program at Georgetown College was founded 37 years ago by the family of George F. Baker, a leading financier and philanthropist, who believed in cultivating business leaders who are intellectually inspired and socially conscious.
The Baker Program offers a unique opportunity for Georgetown College students to experience the world of business firsthand. Dynamic in nature, the Program enables Scholars to develop and lead initiatives, such as: retreats and educational business trips, in-depth discussions with industry leaders, and focused group projects. Community service is an integral part of the Baker experience. Baker Scholars exemplify the Jesuit ideal women and men for others.
Bakers Scholars demonstrate a strong academic record, dedication to service, and an active interest in business. Bakers are motivated and talented in different ways and represent a diversity of background and life experiences. Scholars are expected to make meaningful contributions to the Program, to Georgetown, and to the world. To become a Baker is to be a Baker for life.
