Students Invited to Apply for IWU Entrepreneurial Fellowship
Sept. 19, 2016
BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Entrepreneurially minded students who have a business idea are
invited to submit proposals for the IWU Entrepreneurial Fellowship for a chance to
receive a $5,000 grant.
The IWU Entrepreneurial Fellowship will provide a student of any academic major with
the opportunity to pursue an entrepreneurial idea under the supervision of a faculty
member and guidance of a successful entrepreneur. The program is designed to deepen
research and creative competencies and help a student advance his or her business
idea and prepare to take the idea to market.
Once applications are received, the top candidates will present their business ideas
to a panel of judges. Proposals are due Oct. 24 for round 1 of the fellowship. The selected student will have the
opportunity to work on his or her business idea the following semester. Students can
take an independent course credit in the Department of Business Administration if they desire. Round 2 proposals are due Feb. 13, 2017. Graduating seniors are
not eligible for round 2. Proposal materials are due to the Associate Provost’s Office
by 4 p.m. on the day of the deadline.
