The Entrepreneurial Experiences Fund is provided by the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship to help enable and encourage student experiences that enhance entrepreneurial learning and connections. These experiences may include attending entrepreneurial workshops, seminars, pitch competitions, related conferences or symposia, for which the McFerrin Center may provide funding to any Texas A&M student.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis during fall and spring semesters (August 1 – May 1). Applicants must submit an online application at least six weeks prior to when the funds are needed. Applicants should also allow an additional 6 weeks for application processing, and acknowledge that stipend payments may not be made available prior to participation deadlines.
Funds for Summer Experiences must be submitted by the May 1st deadline. No applications will be accepted during the summer.
Any student who receives support through the Entrepreneurial Experiences Fund must participate in The Last Word during the spring semester. In addition, award recipients must complete a post-trip recap within one month of the experience conclusion.
Open to ALL students at Texas A&M University with the intent to elevate your entrepreneurial experiences.
*Entrepreneurial Study Abroad programs or other experiences related to curricular studies are generally not considered eligible for these funds, although many other TAMU programs offer support for these activities.
