The Muldoon Partners in Entrepreneurship have committed five $1,000 scholarships for students who are in the Entrepreneurship Minor (E-minor) program. The exact details of the awarding of the scholarships are being worked out by the University, but Jackie Schmidt, a professor in the Tim Russert Department of Communication and Theatre Arts and Director of the Entrepreneurship Minor said: “It’s great to see this new group step up to help our students”.
The Minor in Entrepreneurship was developed with the assistance of the Burton D. Morgan Foundation to exponentially improve upon the current state of the art in entrepreneurship programs at other universities by adopting the “best practices” of the top programs in the country. The Minor is focused on Arts and Science students since 75% of all entrepreneurs graduated from an Arts and Science programs according to a 2004 Kauffman Foundation Report. In our program, 75% of the instructors in our Minor are Arts and Science professors.
