Welcome Class of 2019 Siebel Scholars

 
The Internet of Things. AI. Machine Learning. Cloud Computing. Big Data. With profound shifts taking place in technology, the world requires thinkers who change the rules about how it can be applied for human benefit across societal domains.
 
Today, 96 distinguished students of the Class of 2019 join past Siebel Scholars classes to form an unmatched professional and personal network of more than 1,300 entrepreneurs, researchers and philanthropists.  96 students hailing from the world’s top programs in business, computer science, bioengineering, and energy science. This exceptional group of leaders directly influence the technologies, policies, and economic and social decisions that will shape the future.
 
 “Every year, the Siebel Scholars continue to astound me with their commitment to academics, research and influencing our collective future. This year’s class is exceptional, and once again represents the best and brightest from around the world,” said Thomas M. Siebel, Chairman of the Siebel Scholars Foundation. “It is my great pleasure to welcome these men and women into this ever-growing, lifelong community, and I personally look forward to seeing their impact and contributions unfold.”
 
Established in 2000 by the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation, the Siebel Scholars program awards grants to 16 universities in the United States, China, France, Italy and Japan. Following a competitive review process by the deans of their respective schools on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and demonstrated leadership, the top graduate students from 27 partner programs are selected each year as Siebel Scholars and receive a $35,000 award for their final year of studies. On average, Siebel Scholars rank in the top five percent of their class, many within the top one percent.
