Our Work

Business for Impact's Impact Scholar program serves communities by driving financially and socially sustainable economic development. The program promotes investment in impact through programming, internships, research, partnerships and advocacy.

Each year, the initiative matches students at Georgetown University McDonough School of Business with governments, businesses and organizations to serve on projects that help build capacity, infrastructure and alignment between investors, lenders, institutions and local communities.
