Announcing Our New Entrepreneurship Scholarship

By HBS Tuesday, December 4, 2018

scholarshipWe are proud to announce a new scholarship program aimed at supporting entrepreneurial-minded undergraduate students. The $1,000 scholarship will be available for the Fall 2019 semester.

“We’re excited to get this scholarship off the ground,” said Rick Bell, the company’s Founder and Chairman about the new initiative. He added, “We hope it becomes an annual program going forward.”

In the U.S., there are hundreds of colleges and universities that offer entrepreneurship programs and often as a designated major. As with other types of programs, tuition costs (and the student loans they often necessitate) can be overwhelming. 2018 data from USA Today indicates Entrepreneurship students, on average, take on close to $10,000 in debt per year. These students find themselves paying off their debt for years after graduation when they’d prefer to be investing in their business ideas.

“Our goal is to help one student with a brilliant business idea achieve his or her dream just a little bit faster,” said Bell. “Whether it’s a new social networking app, a flying car, or something with more of a niche market, we want to help bring it to life.”

Scholarship Eligibility

The new scholarship will be available to all undergraduate students at U.S.-based accredited colleges or universities who are majoring in entrepreneurship or another business program. Students can apply by submitting a short essay describing their entrepreneurial aspirations and business idea. Additional details and an application form can be found at:  

The deadline to apply for this scholarship is February 15, 2019. The winning applicant will be contacted in July 2019.
