Call for University Innovation Fellows – Closes April 15th

The Pavlis Honors College is looking for undergraduate and graduate students interested in becoming agents of change to become University Innovation Fellows (http://universityinnovationfellows.org/) and work on improving the innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem here at Michigan Tech. The college will be sponsoring 4 students to become Fellows during the Fall 2016 semester. We are looking for creative, action-oriented students who are passionate and excited about innovation and entrepreneurship. Please forward this on to any students who may be interested. We appreciate all of your help in finding awesome students for this opportunity!

The application can be found here: http://goo.gl/forms/N6zQwMHDVr We will be accepting applications until Friday, April 15th at 11:59pm.

The University Innovation Fellows is a 6-week training program administered by Stanford University’s d.school (a commitment equivalent to a 1-2 credit class at Michigan Tech). Through the fellowship, undergraduate and graduate students from across the nation are charged with cultivating a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at their university. Fellows gain skills, tools and the networks crucial for their mission through online training and video-conferencing sessions. Fellows hone their leadership and communication skills and broaden their understanding of experiential learning, design thinking, interdisciplinary education and, most importantly, student innovation and entrepreneurship.

Upon completion of training, fellows are invited to attend a 4-day retreat at Stanford University and Google. The fellowship is an opportunity to enact meaningful change while being part of a national movement. Current fellows at Michigan Tech have been working on many exciting initiatives (for examples, see the following links, here and here) and can’t wait to have your help in creating the future on our campus.
