The Entrepreneurship Scholars Program is now accepting applications from students across all majors and disciplines to join the 2021-22 cohort. E-Scholars is a highly selective program that accepts up to 25 students each year. The year-long academic program challenges students to find their passions, explore outside the classroom, build their network and develop their own venture. Other benefits of the program include domestic and international travel, working one-on-one with a mentor, participate in Pilot Venture Challenge, and be a member of the E-Scholar network.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Entrepreneur Scholars Program at University of Portland, and faculty, staff, and entrepreneur scholars alumni and friends are invited to attend a special gathering on Saturday, June 29, to be held on campus in the Bauccio Commons President’s Board Room from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Christine Naylor, business, at email@example.com.
Kevin Bastien, a junior computer science major and Entrepreneur Scholar, has been accepted to the prestigious NCIIA/Epicenter Engineering University Innovation Fellows program, according to Peter Rachor, Franz Center. His application was supported by Rachor, Tammy Vandegrift, Sharon Jones, and Robin Anderson.
Bastien’s fellowship is seen as an opportunity for UP to have a member of this national group on campus in support of entrepreneurship and innovation initiatives within the Franz Center for Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Innovation. It will also support increased focus on entrepreneurship, leadership, and innovation within the Pamplin School of Business, the Shiley School of Engineering, and campus-wide.
The University Innovation Fellows program is run by the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), a National Science Foundation-funded partnership between Stanford University and the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA).
