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 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.

  2. Hi,

    My name is Kate Dorman, and I attend the University of Washington in Seattle. I have completed the application and received a message reading ‘Your response has been recorded’ but that I can also edit it. Does this mean that the application has been submitted or is there another step in the application process?

    Thank you in advance for your help,

      Thanks for your application! We did receive your application through the form and you are all set. The link that you received gives you the ability to update your application if you would like to, but this is certainly not required. You have done everything you need to to be considered for the grant.
