Jake Guglielmucci, a freshman in Brooklyn College’s Scholars Program who is majoring in both Finance and Philosophy, has been named a Jeannette K. Watson Fellow.

The 25th Class of Jeannette K. Watson Fellows — the class of 2026 — embody a diverse range of backgrounds and talents. Their three-year experience will take them across disciplines, sectors, and international borders.

With the support from the award, Guglielmucci aspires to immerse himself in the field of ethical and social entrepreneurship. This summer, he will be working with the Aspen Institute’s Network of Development Entrepreneurs, whose mission is to foster entrepreneurship in developing economies, with special emphasis on sustainable business practices and elevating women entrepreneurs. Furthermore, he hopes to explore Mumbai’s thriving startup scene to understand and document the intersection of entrepreneurship, technology, and ethical business practices.
