Meet Laurin Kolb, A College of Business Graduate scholarship recipient.

Starting in the fall semester of each academic year, The College of Business at Texas A&M University-Commerce awards several scholarships to assist incoming graduate students. This year, the College of Business also awarded scholarships to eight international students from across the globe that have demonstrated academic excellence as well as leadership and service in their communities. One of this year's recipients is Laurin Kolb, an international student from Frankfurt, Germany pursuing a Master's degree in Business Administration (MBA). 

Upon receiving his scholarship, Laurin said “With acceptance into the Business school, I was very grateful to have received a scholarship from the university.

He continued, “I am so grateful to the university and the College of Business for the scholarship and the significant financial support that it provides. Because of such a scholarship fund, I am now able to continue to receive a higher education degree which I know will have a tremendous impact on my life.” Laurin expressed his excitement saying that “I recommend every student to apply for a scholarship at A&M-Commerce. Available online and an easy process, it only takes a few minutes to apply and transform your future.”
