Social Entrepreneur Award
The Social Entrepreneur Award represents the collaborative and innovative spirit of the Students Serving Washington Awards. Washington Campus Compact will present a unique question, or social entrepreneurial challenge, in each of the critical issue areas. These social entrepreneur challenges will act as prompts for student service leaders to develop novel, innovative solutions that address the identified challenge. Student teams at WACC member institutions will work on the questions posed, creating a proposal for how to address the challenge. Student proposals will include a project narrative, logic model, budget, and a literature review. Winners will receive seed grants through their institution to begin implementing their proposed solutions during the following academic year.
Social Entrepreneur Award recipients will receive $10,000 in seed grant funding to be used for developing their proposal into a project that addresses the critical issue. Students must be currently enrolled for a minimum of 6 credits at a Washington Campus Compact member institution. Student applicants must identify one college/university sponsor (faculty or administrator) and/or one public or private community partner who will submit a letter of recommendation. Applicants must also submit one to six (6) photos and one (1) short video (less than 2 minutes) that accurately "tells the story" of the service project.For full details and to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
