We are again proud to offer e-Fest / Schulze Entrepreneurship Development Grants for 2020!

This grant application is to be completed by a faculty or staff member involved with entrepreneurship education and who may also serve as a student team advisor. There is one grant per college or university. Please do not contact the Richard M Schulze Family Foundation directly. Please do not call them. If you have questions please email David.Deeds@StThomas.edu.

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. Funds are to 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 mention e-Fest to their students and encourage the formation of at least one undergraduate student team. 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
- visit the EIX.org website and provide feedback about using EIX.org entrepreneurship teaching resources in class and student activities.*

* Our EIX.org website offers free, peer-reviewed entrepreneurship teaching resources, research, and articles. EIX and the Richard M Schulze Family Foundation are the sponsors of e-Fest, which is held at the University of St Thomas, Schulze School of Entrepreneurship, in Minneapolis.
