About: In 2015, Hyde Park Angels (HPA) endowed the HPA Venture Capital Award, enabling the Polsky Center to provide $5,000 to support one MBA student’s 10+ week summer internship at a venture capital firm. Open to all first year full-time MBA students returning to Booth in the fall, the Hyde Park Angels Venture Capital Award allows more financial flexibility to pursue an internship at a venture capital firm over the summer. Applications will be reviewed by a selection committee, made up of representatives from the Polsky Center, Career Services, and Hyde Park Angels. The committee will determine the recipient of this award based on: demonstrated commitment to a career in venture capital; involvement in venture capital programming at Chicago Booth and around the Chicago community; defined goals for their summer experience; and compensation from host firm.
