Each cohort of Launchpad at Morehouse will be awarded a fellowship of $1,000 per semester and will complete a six-week co-curricular program that will help develop their entrepreneurial acumen. Using Gallup’s Building Builders framework, we will identify where students are on their innovation journey and expose them to people, technology, and frameworks to bring their ideas to life.
What do you look for in an applicant?
We place high emphasis on individuals who have focus and can demonstrate commitment to their venture. The ideal Launchpad at Morehouse fellow is serious about launching or expanding their idea, and we look for individuals who have excitement for entrepreneurship on a global scale.
If my venture isn’t generating revenue, or has not won a competition, should I still apply?
We recognize that revenue or awards are not the perfect indicators of entrepreneurial potential. If you believe you are a good fit for Launchpad at Morehouse we encourage you to apply to be considered for our fellowship program!
