Kauffman Foundation Global Scholars Program opened to US companies
Applications available online, due Oct. 17, 2011
A world-class opportunity awaits U.S. college graduates with innovative ideas for a new business. The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is expanding its successful Global Scholars Program to include up to 10 recent graduates from U.S. colleges and universities who will join Scholars from around the world.
During the first five years of the Global Scholars Program, Kauffman hosted students sponsored by governments and organizations from five countries representing 11 nationalities. In 2012, the expanded Program will enable selected U.S. Scholars to learn and network with an international group of fellow aspiring entrepreneurs.

The Global Scholars Program is an amazing opportunity for entrepreneurs to get immersed in their business. After indoctrination and several months at the headquarters in Kansas City, the team of people head to Silicon Valley to rub shoulders with locals. They even get to intern at local companies for several weeks to really get a sense for what it is like to work at a company like Google, Yahoo, Cisco, and many others.
I had the distinct pleasure of coaching the last two Global Scholars classes from 2009 and 2010. They are really fun people who are thirsty for knowledge that can help them run and succeed in their companies. I am looking forward to working with the new class of people early next year! Apply now, if you want to be considered for this amazing program!
