Fuel Entrepreneurship Pursuits
Date: Nov. 1 – Nov. 30th, 2018
Help fund student travel to competitions and conferences. Students need to travel in order to Fuel Entrepreneurship Pursuits from idea to implementation; however, many young entrepreneurs cannot afford to do so without the help of special grants for travel. Among the students who will receive travel reimbursement funds are eLab students who travel to Silicon Valley, and student delegates to the  Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) conference who have committed to taking action on social entrepreneurship projects.
