We are again proud to offer e-Fest development grants for 2019! First time grantees will receive $2,500, to be used to help develop e-Fest teams, entrepreneurship curricula, or support a local business concept competition or other entrepreneurship student activities. Schools that received development grants in 2017 or 2018 are eligible for continuation grants of $1,500. Funds are limited and grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Before Starting This Application
1. Your college or university must be registered for e-Fest 2019 (register here).
2. You should obtain a completed IRS Form W-9 for your institution (these are typically available through your business office or accounting department).

Grant Processing

We will send an email confirmation upon receipt and review of each grant application. Grant checks will be mailed within 4 to 6 weeks after approval. Before starting the application, please have your organization's W-9 form (PDF) handy, so you can upload it. Incomplete applications cannot be processed, and we cannot track down W9 forms. 


Grant recipients must:

- be a 4 year college or university in North America
- offer at least one entrepreneurship course
- visit the EIX.org website and provide some feedback about using EIX.org entrepreneurship teaching resources in class*
