Social Venture Student Fellowship

Scholarships for Outstanding Students at Jesuit Institutions

As students are struggling to find internship and employment opportunities more than ever, Ignited and the Global Center for Social Entrepreneurship Network Foundation (GCSEN) are collaborating to support to Jesuit colleges and universities by forming a fellowship of students who have a passion for socially-beneficial business- helping people, making a profit, stewarding the planet and building up the local economy. Through this fellowship, we will grant a scholarship to one student from each IAJBS school for enrollment in GCSEN’s Social Entrepreneurship Internship program led by Professor Michael Caslin starting July 15- August 30.

Empowering Students at Jesuit Institutions

Embraced by institutions such as St. Peter’s University Business School, Vassar College, and Wheaton College (MA), GCSEN’s learning experiences use a combination of education, coaching, and professional support to empower future entrepreneurs to launch their own social venture. All internships are completed virtually with scheduled group coaching.

Made possible with the support of the Diana Davis Spender Foundation, the scholarship will cover the $2,500 tuition fee for this blended-learning experience. We hope this opportunity will lighten the burden and open new doors for students in our community during this uncertain time and help them light up the world in the spirit of service leadership.
