First Eagle Investment Management Introduces New Scholarship
At First Eagle, we have long held that no one has a monopoly on the truth. Inherent in this precept is a commitment to advocating for new and diverse perspectives. As such, we are excited to introduce the First Eagle Investment Management Foundation Scholarship, a merit-based award for a student in the Value Investing Program at Columbia Business School. In addition to subsidizing the recipient’s educational expenses, the scholarship—which begins with the 2019–20 academic year—will include an internship with our Global Value team and the opportunity to work side-by-side with our experienced and thoughtful investment professionals. Through this scholarship we hope to promote increased diversity both within our firm and in the investment management industry.
The scholarship represents an extension of our relationship with Columbia Business School and the Heilbrunn Center for Graham and Dodd Investing, which administers the rigorous Value Investing Program as part of its commitment to the dynamic study and development of value investing. First Eagle employs a number of Columbia Business School graduates, and we established the Jean-Marie Eveillard Professorship of Value Investing in 2016. Further, we are proud to count both Tano Santos and Bruce Greenwald—current director and retired co-director, respectively, of the Heilbrunn Center—as senior advisors to the firm, who alongside Jean-Marie lend a wealth of experience and insight in support of the Global Value team’s research efforts.
