The Advisory Board of Gonzaga University’s Hogan Entrepreneurial Leadership Program has established a scholarship fund in the name of Professor Paul Buller who has served as director since the program was founded in 2000 and now becomes the program’s academic director.
Fred Brown, a Hogan Advisory Board member and chief executive officer for Next IT, conceived of the scholarship fund.
“The Advisory Board wanted to recognize Dr. Buller for his outstanding leadership and vision,” Brown said. “He has helped to grow the Hogan program from a concept to a nationally recognized model in entrepreneurial education. The scholarship is a way to both honor Paul and to help students in the program on an ongoing basis.”
Buller, Ph.D., is a professor of management and business administration at Gonzaga and is the university’s Kinsey M. Robinson Professor of Business Administration. Buller, a Gonzaga faculty member since 1989, has set a standard of excellence as a teacher and scholar and in his role as faculty adviser, academic citizen and director of the successful Hogan Program.
The Paul Buller Entrepreneurial Leadership Scholarship will be awarded annually to exceptional students in the Hogan Program. The scholarship fund has reached $25,000. To contribute to the scholarship contact Gonzaga’s University Relations at (509) 323-5995.
