New Fellowship For MBA Students At UCI Honors Luis Villalobos
A new endowed fellowship fund, which will be awarded to a graduate MBA student at the Paul Merage School of Business at University of California, Irvine, has been established to honor the Tech Coast Angels' Luis Villalobos. According to the Tech Coast Angels, the new fellowship--the Luis Villalobos Endowed Fellowship in Entrepreneurship--will be awarded to a student with an interest in entrepreneurship and/or starting or being part of a new business. Villalobos, founder of the Tech Coast Angels, passed away on October first. The Tech Coast Angels is now the largest angel investor group in Southern California, and is among the largest in the U.S., with over 250 members. According to the TCA, applications for the fellowship will be reviewed by a committee of donors, and will only be awarded in years a suitable candidate is identified. The group said the fellowship will be available for application in 2010.
