Entrepreneurship Fellows Program
Catalyzing Cross-Campus Entrepreneurship Education
About the Entrepreneurship Fellows Program
Specifically designed for faculty in arts and sciences, public affairs, education and other areas outside business, the Entrepreneurship Fellows Program will train, coach and fund participants to create new entrepreneurial courses in their departments or incorporate entrepreneurship principles into existing courses.
Entrepreneurship Fellows will work together to:
- Learn about and apply cutting-edge entrepreneurship principles and practices in their own disciplines
- Create a new course or significantly redesign learning activities and assignments for an existing course
- Teach the new or redesigned course during the 2017–2018 academic year
All regular faculty members — including tenured, tenure-track and lecturers — are eligible to apply.
Up to seven faculty members will be selected for the cohort, led by CIEF Director Dale Eesley.
Participants will spend approximately 40 hours on cohort activities throughout the academic year, including background readings and “homework” activities, course development, progress meetings and a fall workshop.
Dr. Dianne H.B. Welsh, Hayes Distinguished Chair of Entrepreneurship at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, will lead a workshop on interdisciplinary entrepreneurship and curriculum development for Entrepreneurship Fellows.
- October 7, 2016, 8 A.M.–4:30 P.M.
In addition to the engagement and support of colleagues, cohort participants will receive $250 after the fall workshop, $250 when the course is listed in the catalog and $1,000 for the first three times a new course is taught ($500 for a modified course). Additional funding opportunities are available.
