Do you want to help a local business or learn from an entrepreneur? Do you have a great idea that benefits the Yankton community and all you need is help to get it off the ground?
This is the second year of the Onward Yankton Entrepreneurship Experience program. The program will connect participating fellows to entrepreneurs and SCORE mentors in the community and give the recipients the opportunity to gain broader business experiences, see real-life applications of entrepreneurship and make valuable connections throughout the Yankton community.
The fellowships will be awarded to six individuals who exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit and strive
to enhance the Yankton community. Fellows will earn an $800 scholarship or stipend.
This opportunity is open to anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit and desire to enhance the Yankton community. Candidates may be recent high school graduates, current college or technical school students, or anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit who is starting or growing a business.
The program will run from May 21, 2018 to August 1, 2018. Fellowship funds may be paid directly to the college as a scholarship (non-taxable to student) or a stipend will be paid to the individuals as reportable, taxable income after they successfully complete the program.
