I'm very excited to announce that CommerceHub will award $10,000 in scholarships to two local college students who best exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit. Students at Capital Region colleges, or local students studying elsewhere, can apply at commercehub.com/scholarship.
Every year, the Capital Region says goodbye to thousands of graduating college students. Many of these bright minds leave for where they believe the big opportunities exist – Boston, New York or Silicon Valley. CommerceHub must play an active role in convincing smart and creative young adults to stay here in the Capital Region. We can show them that the Capital Region, and Tech Valley in general, is a thriving tech hub that provides huge opportunity for success.
The program is open to students in any major or field of study, and winners will be selected based upon their creativity and big thinking rather than GPA or other traditional criteria.
Students are asked to provide a video that demonstrates how they possess the traits of an entrepreneur by sharing experiences, ideas, aspirations -- we want to know why they will be the next great entrepreneur.
Visit commercehub.com/scholarship for all of the details and the simple application form.
