    Fellow Division Members

    The Richard M. Schulze Family Foundation has made generous grants available to entrepreneurship programs, the only string is that you agree to enter a team in e-Fest 2020 (https://eix.org/e-fest-guide/ ) . The grant application deadline is in 7 days (2/26).

    First time grantees will receive $2,500. Schools that received a grant(s) in the past and met the grant requirements are eligible for a continuation grant of $1,500. Funds can be used to help develop e-Fest teams and/or support a school business concept competition or other undergraduate student-focused entrepreneurship activities. We expect grant recipients to enter at least one undergraduate student team (on-line submission of a 7-minute video and 15 good slides) in e-Fest 2020.

    Funds are limited, all applications are screened for eligibility according to e-Fest rules, and grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.


    Grant recipients must:

    - be a 4 year college or university in North America

    - offer at least one entrepreneurship course

    - be engaged in student entrepreneurship experiences and learning

    - encourage the development of at least one undergraduate e-Fest team
