Each year we enroll five incoming students designated as U-Imagine Ambassadors, who will receive a scholarship worth $8,000 per year, on top of their merit award. This scholarship is renewable for all four years provided the students remain in good academic standing.
U-Imagine Ambassadors will engage closely with our U-Imagine Center for Integrative and Entrepreneurial Studies. The U-Imagine Center for Integrative and Entrepreneurial Studies offers students a variety of opportunities to explore, experience, and excel at whatever might interest them. IMAGINE U collaborating with other students to create something of value that really matters to you. The U-Imagine Center is open to any student in any major and provides a premier space on campus to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. Students can enhance their skills for life beyond college through the various programs that the U-Imagine Center provides. If U can IMAGINE it, you can do it!
Ambassadors will work closely with our Entrepreneur-in-Residence Maureen Cumpstone and will have unique opportunities to gain exposure to the likes of digital marketing, public relations, venture development work, and much more.
Ambassadors are expected to dedicate at least six hours per week to the Center.
