Pathways to Entrepreneurship Grants unveiled
The Entrepreneurship at ASU initiative is committed to making entrepreneurship education available to all students across all campuses, and to integrating the entrepreneurial spirit into its culture.
This past spring, officials with the Entrepreneurship at ASU initiative (formerly known as the University as Entrepreneur initiative) requested proposals from faculty and staff members as part of the Student Pathways Award (SPA) program. In addition to expanding educational opportunities for students, PEG funding also can be used for faculty and staff development programs, such as a speaker series that’s open to faculty, staff, students and alumni.
SPA has been expanded and renamed the Pathways to Entrepreneurship Grants (PEG). Six programs have received funding from this award.
PEG funds are available for teams of ASU faculty and staff members to help create new or enhanced interdisciplinary entrepreneurship education and research programs.
With PEG funds, teams can enhance existing entrepreneurship courses, educational opportunities and research, or incorporate entrepreneurship education in new ways.
Grants will range from $2,000 to $40,000 and will have a one-year term, with two opportunities to apply each year. A competition for spring programs will be held for programs from Jan. 1 to June 30, and a competition for fall programs will be held for programs from July 1 to Dec. 31.
Nov. 7 is the deadline for applications for programs starting in the spring. For more information on the program, application materials and past award winners, visit the Web site www.asu.edu/ui/entrepreneurship/atasu/peg.html.
