Three members of the Saint Louis University faculty have been named Coleman Foundation Fellows for 2011-12. The recognition is given to educators who infuse part of their own academic programs with materials promoting entrepreneurship.
Each of the recipients receives a grant of $5,000 for one year.
Fellows can apply for up to $1,000 of follow-on funding for subsequent years. Three SLU professors were awarded 2011-12 follow-on grants by the Coleman Foundation.
Other Coleman Fellows at the University include Alicia Slocum, Ph.D. (business/Madrid), Jintong Tang, Ph.D. (management) and Steve Wernet, Ph.D. (social work)
About the Coleman Fellows: The Coleman Foundation of Chicago supports the promotion of entrepreneurship in education. There are currently more than 100 Coleman Fellows nationally in over 25 disciplines.
At SLU, Coleman Fellows efforts have led to new programs such as the masters in culinary entrepreneurship and new grants, including an engineering entrepreneurship grant to Parks College from the Kern Family Foundation of Milwaukee.
In addition, Fellows collaborate on a variety of activities promoting entrepreneurship across the campus, including the Billiken Angel Network (BAN) campus wide business plan competition and the Bright Ideas grant competition.
