e-Fest Grants Can Help Schools Fund Entrepreneurship Programs
e-Fest®, our annual business idea competition for undergraduates, returns April 18-20, 2024. If you're a professor or advisor to students in an entrepreneurship program at an accredited US-based college or university, take note: We're offering some developmental grants to help these students get their business ideas ready for the competition.
EIX and the Schulze Family Foundation will award up to $125,000 in development grants to institutions to support developing e-Fest teams and/or entrepreneurship related programs and activities. First time grantees will receive $2,500. Schools that received a grant(s) in the past and met grant requirements are eligible for a continuation grant of $1,500.
Development Grant applications opened October 18, 2023. Visit the e-Fest® website for more information about development grants, the competition, team resources and lots more! Be sure to subscribe and stay connected for all things e-Fest 2024.
