David Crowley Named a 2015 McGowan Fellow

The William G. McGowan Charitable Fund has announced the 10 recipients of its 2015 fellowship awards. David Crowley, a second-year MBA student, was selected from Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business. The fellowships recognize second-year MBA students who show outstanding leadership ability, as well as strong dedication to ethics and community service. They also must be in the top 10 percent of their class.

Fellows receive a full-tuition scholarship for their second-year studies and mentoring throughout the academic year from a prominent business leader selected by their home school. Fellows also participate in a social impact group project. This year’s project is sponsored by Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and will focus on strategic issues surrounding Chicago’s uninsured population.

Diana Spencer, executive director of the McGowan Fund, said, “On behalf of the McGowan Fund Board of Directors, I am delighted to welcome our sixth class of McGowan Fellows into this extraordinary community of the best and the brightest MBA students in the country. With ethical and societal concern at the forefront, the McGowan Fellows endeavor to become a generation of leaders who will better both their workplaces and communities, efforts that directly align with the values of the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund.”

Crowley is pursuing a concentration in finance in Georgetown McDonough’s Full-time MBA program. He is a member of the Finance Club, Real Estate Society, and the Latin American Business Association, and is a tutor at For Love of Children, a Washington, D.C., nonprofit providing educational services for at-risk students. This summer, Crowley interned with the real estate investment banking team at the Washington, D.C., office of Robert W. Baird & Company. Crowley started his career at a wealth management firm in Philadelphia. In 2011 he moved to Nicaragua for a position with Alternativa, a microfinance institution located in the town of Masaya. After one year in Nicaragua, he joined the Inter-American Development Bank, which is located just 2.5 miles from Georgetown University, as an analyst in the structured and corporate finance department. Crowley received a bachelor of business administration degree in finance from the University of Notre Dame.
