Summer Scholars Taking Applications for Summer 2017 Class

The Summer Scholars Class of 2016

The Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is accepting applications for the 2017 class of Summer Scholars.

Open to all incoming University of Missouri-Kansas City freshmen, sophomores and transfer students, Summer Scholars is a two-week intensive course that prepares participants for their entrepreneurial path. The first half of the course introduces students to entrepreneurial processes, theories and resources, while the second half focuses on venture creation, culminating in a pitch contest.

“This is an opportunity for students to get involved in entrepreneurship and innovation early in their college careers. Whether you are majoring in business, art, engineering, or education, an innovative mindset will help you build value in your career,” said Ben Williams, Regnier Institute Assistant Director. “This is the perfect opportunity to take a fun, fast-paced course, to engage with other high-quality students and to jump start your college career. The fact that everyone is eligible for a scholarship makes it a no-brainer.”

Participants in the Summer Scholars program will receive three credit hours which count toward the Introduction to Entrepreneurship course requirement. Each student is eligible to apply for a scholarship up to the cost of the course.
