We are looking for students interested in becoming agents of change to become University Innovation Fellows! They will work on improving the innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem here at Michigan Tech. We are looking for creative, action-oriented students who are passionate and excited about innovation, entrepreneurship, or making positive change.  

The University Innovation Fellows is a 6-week training program administered by Stanford University’s (about the commitment of 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 in on their leadership and communication abilities and broaden their understanding of experiential learning, design thinking, interdisciplinary education and, most importantly, student innovation and entrepreneurship. 

Upon completion of training, Fellows may have the opportunity 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 and can’t wait to have your help in creating the future here on campus!
