The Michael & Robin Marcotte Leadership Fund at the University of Oklahoma
oth Robin and I have traveled abroad extensively, and we feel strongly that spending time in another country is an
extremely worthwhile educational experience. With rare exceptions, such experiences go a long way toward developing an
awareness of both the cultural differences and the similarities that we share with other nationalities, and
ultimately help to promote international goodwill and mutual understanding, even though at the humble level of
person-to-person, and one student at a time. We also feel that such extended visits abroad impart a deeper,
more-informed appreciation of our own blessings as citizens of the United States.
In 2008, with this in mind we established an endowed fellowship/scholarship fund at the University of Oklahoma
Foundation, which provides study-abroad assistance to deserving students in the J.C. Penney Leadership Center, in the
Price College of Business, at the University of Oklahoma. Only the annual interest income earned from the principal balance is
expended. The first award from this fund was made in 2011. Although Robin and I continue to build this endowment each year,
anyone may donate to the fund, and all contributions are made to and are receipted by the University of Oklahpoma Foundation.
Below is a link to a University of Oklahoma Foundation's secure online donation form, which automatically directs your donation
into the Michael and Robin Marcotte Leadership Fund. The University of Oklahoma Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
foundation, and all donations to this fund are fully tax-deductible. Immediate family members are ineligible for the award.
Award recipients are independently selected by the J.C. Penney Leadership Center at the University.
