Tell me more

The St. Louis Entrepreneurial Fellowship is a year-long experience that includes:

  • A seminar during the spring semester that explores innovation and entrepreneurship
  • A 10-week paid summer internship at a St. Louis startup
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Programs and events to engage with entrepreneurs, founders, and innovators

Who is it for?

The fellowship is open to current first-years, sophomores, and juniors from all majors interested in exploring entrepreneurship and innovation. You do not need to have an interest in starting your own business to be a St. Louis Entrepreneurial Fellow.

“I believe that entrepreneurship is more about ‘creating something’ than it is about ‘starting a business’…this program is fundamentally focused on ‘creating something.”
