The Next Carson Coug

2020–21 Impacts

The Carson College of Business is proud to report the successes of The Next Carson Coug (TNCC) undergraduate program made possible by those who share our vision to offer students the best business education in the Pacific Northwest.

The Carson EDGE (Expanding Diverse Group Experiences) program supporting first-generation business students, has grown by nearly 50 percent since launching.

Financial support, such as Carson Career Amplifier scholarships, is key to our students’ success. The Career Amplifier is a TNCC program focusing on student retention and career readiness.

On the following pages, Jack and Molly Thompson, Jon and Tammy Hossfeld, and Molly Philopant share their personal perspectives on what motivates them to support TNCC.

Carson Career Amplifier Scholarships

After moving back home, the Amplifier Program helped me stay connected to online events as a Carson Coug and engaged in a variety of different business topics. Emiliano De La Rosa, entrepreneurship
Without the Amplifier Program scholarship, my transfer to WSU would have been so much harder, and I would have lost a lot of crucial career planning experiences. Ashlyn Cheuvront, marketing and international business
