The Coleman Elevator Grants
brought to you by
For the past six years, the Coleman Foundation has provided more than $445,000 in grants to NACCE members, through the Coleman Elevator Grants competition. It's the only competitive grant program designed specifically for 2-year college entrepreneurship programs.
Besides being the only competition of its kind, it's also one of the most exciting events at our conferences. Approved submissions are given 3 minutes to pitch their proposal to the audience and a panel of judges, with a 2 minute Q & A follow-up. The entries are then judged and announced on the last day of the conference.
They're fast-paced and fascinating to watch for the ideas alone and of special interest for any college looking to apply in the future.
Applications for the 2012 Elevator Grants are Now Closed.
