As a website dedicated to entrepreneurship and personal finance, we want to take the opportunity to give back to the next generation of entrepreneurs and hustlers. Our focus is all about making money, saving money and growing money. We know that money can be tight as a student and building a business on the side takes a lot of time and effort. With an editor who paid his own way through college with various entrepreneurial endeavors, we understand what that journey can be like. We want to reward those who have the ideas, inspiration and drive to build a business as a student. With that in mind, we are proud to announce a financial gift program specifically for students, the Stealthy and Wealthy Entrepreneur Student Grant.
Giving Back to Ambitious Students
Whether you have an idea for an app, a blog or a vlog, a talent for creating products that you want to sell online, a savvy method for investing, or a technological innovation that you want to get off the ground, we want to help. This grant is for anyone interested in building their own business or side hustle to help them get ahead while they are in school. The money can be used for marketing your business, purchasing materials, setting up at a trade show, launching an online store, or whatever your business or idea needs to help you succeed.
The Student Entrepreneur Grant
To give back to the next generation of entrepreneurs and finance minds, we have created a grant that will go directly to the student who will be working to build their future.
The grant: A $250 gift each fall
There is one grant that will be awarded each fall to a college student in the United States. This grant will be a $250 one-time gift given to the student who is selected. The money is intended to be used as an investment or to help build a personal side business for the future entrepreneur.
- Must be enrolled at a College or University in the United States in the fall.
- Must communicate in a short written submission how the $250 gift will help with building your entrepreneurial venture for the future.
- Must have an email address and respond to communication about the grant.
What the Application will Ask
Our goal is to get this grant money in the hands of someone who can do something great with it. The goal is not to put any students through a long and difficult application process. To apply, students will need to complete three simple steps in a form:
1. Confirm that you are eligible to receive the gift (current College student in the United States).
2. If awarded, how you envision using the gift money to build a business or grow the money for your future.
3. Your contact information to ensure communication regarding your application.
