The Rawls Business Leadership Program (RBLP) was awarded a $10,000 Excellence Grant by the Texas Tech Alumni Association for being an innovative and beneficial program to students at Texas Tech University. In particular, the grant focuses on the program's distinguished speaker series, which occurs regularly throughout the year and invites graduates who have success in business to speak to current students.

The purpose of the grant is to assist faculty and staff in efforts to improve access to educational opportunities, encourage education innovation, promote awareness of Texas Tech and support the university's strategic plan.

RBLP, which was established in fall 2013, creates a dynamic learning experience designed to provide students with real-world knowledge and experiences to excel in leadership roles. The program focuses on developing "complete students" who possess both a strong academic foundation and real-world experience necessary to be innovative and ethical leaders. The four elements of the program include experiential living and learning opportunities, real-world application, international experience and interactive personal development with a designated professional mentor. While this program is not an independent major, it is designed to enhance one's learning experience at the Rawls College by providing students the opportunity to participate in action-based leadership activities applicable to all business majors.
