If you answered “yes” to ANY of these questions, we want you to join the Regnier Institute’s Summer Scholars program. We will select up to 30 freshman and sophomore students per year to participate in this 2 week intensive course. The first half will introduce you to entrepreneurial processes, theories, and resources that will prepare you for an entrepreneurial career. The second half will focus on venture creation, culminating in a pitch contest at the end of the week.

Participants in the Summer Scholars program will receive three credit hours that will count for the ENT 215/315 Introduction to Entrepreneurship course requirement. Each student is eligible to receive a scholarship up to the cost of the course.
