The Doherty Scholars

The Doherty Scholars are juniors and seniors who provide leadership within the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business and the Doherty Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership. These students will become leaders in creating an entrepreneurial ecosystem at Elon University. The scholarships were established through a generous gift from Ed and Joan Doherty, whose gifts also established the center that bears their name.
