The Berthiaume Center for Entrepreneurship (BCE) Innovation and Entrepreneurship Scholars Program (IESP) is open to all first year undergraduate students, including transfer students, from any major or discipline who will be enrolling in classes at UMass Amherst.
With support from the Berthiaume Center for Entrepreneurship and the UMass Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) ecosystem, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Scholars will develop their startup from an idea on a napkin to a real business, or advancing a previously established venture. The IESP is a co-curricular (non-credit based) opportunity for advancement for first year students at UMass Amherst.
First year and transfer students are encouraged to apply! What’s in it for me? Funding, mentors and dedicated support.
