Alex Schneider, a second-year Law School student, and Joe Holleran, a junior in the School of Business, were announced as the winners of the ITF scholarship contest Monday. The two students, who established business plans and went through three rounds of review—including presentations before a panel of judges in late March—will each receive a $50,000 scholarship and have their ideas implemented by the university.
Students could win a year's worth of free tuition if they pitch a plan that saves or pulls in $1 million for the University annually.
