Summer programs

UF Young Entrepreneurs for Leadership & Sustainability

The University of Florida’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is pleased to announce our 8th Annual Pre-College Summer Program for High School Students:

This program is for motivated, college-bound rising juniors and seniors who are interested in Entrepreneurship, Social Entrepreneurship, Leadership, and Sustainability.

From June 22 through July 25, 2014 program participants will take two college-level courses at UF: ENT4934 – Exploring Entrepreneurship & SYG2010 – Social Problems & Solutions. Participants will also complete 75+ hours of community service (towards the requirement for Bright Futures Scholarships + IB CAS hours). Students will participate in evening and weekend programing including a Speaker Series, mentor partnerships with Entrepreneurs and Nonprofit Leaders, field trips, visits with Gator Athletes, and other exciting events and activities. The program will culminate with an awards lunch on the final day, recognizing the students for their leadership and entrepreneurial spirit.

Students will work, eat, play, and sleep on campus during the five week program. They will be housed in Beaty Towers, near other high school students attending summer science & engineering programs. Participants will have access to the university’s facilities including a newly renovated library, student union and arts center, and many state of the art recreation and sports facilities (including three fitness facilities, nine fields, two pools, six outdoor court facilities, and a gym).

Applications are NOW AVAILABLE! We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible, as we are processing applications on a rolling basis, with a deadline of March 1.
