Entrepreneurship Fellows Program

The Entrepreneurship Fellows Program (EFP) is designed with the entrepreneurial student in mind. Through a blend of course work and co-curricular activities, the EFP will help students:

• Understand his or her own personal entrepreneurial aptitude
• Learn lessons from entrepreneurial mentors and faculty
• Bond with their entrepreneurial peers and experienced mentors
• Pursue an entrepreneurial career in either new or existing organizations

An undergraduate student at Georgetown's McDonough School of Business can earn the Entrepreneurship Fellowship by doing the following:

1. Complete the course Foundations of Entrepreneurship (3 cr.)
2. Complete the course Launching the Venture (3 cr.)
3. Complete the Entrepreneurial Practicum, which consists of at least 120 hours of supervised practical work (3 cr.)
4. Compete in the Hoya Challenge business pitch competition

Note:  There is some flexibility in scheduling these courses to allow for students who spend a semester abroad to still complete the fellowship.

Applications for the Entrepreneurship Fellows Program Class of 2016 are due by 5:00 p.m. on October 25, 2013. Students interested in applying can find the form here.  If you have questions about the application or the program in general, you can contact Rebecca Cassidy or Alyssa Lovegrove, program co-directors.

The Entrepreneurship Fellowship would be designated on a students’ transcript, pending approval from the appropriate university officials. Fellows receive a certificate of completion at an EFP graduation ceremony.
