JNO Award Application Deadline Extended

The deadline to apply for the JNO award has been extended to October 8th, 2016.

These awards (5,000 per year) will be given to two students enrolled in the Minor in Entrepreneurship through a competitive process. Recipients will be selected by a committee that is appointed by the Director of the Minor. Students applying for the award must have a stated interest in launching their own ventures, whether while enrolled at the University or following their graduation, and must submit a written proposal that demonstrates how a JNO Award will assist them in this project. Working closely with faculty and staff as they develop their respective business plans, recipients can use their awards for research, travel, and internship opportunities as well as for initial start-up funding. 

If your team advances, you will pitch your venture to the selection committee on an agreed upon date and time.
