The Coleman Foundation is a private, independent grantmaker focusing primarily on the Midwest. Foundation resources support Cancer diagnosis, treatment and support; Disability Services; and Education - with a strong emphasis on entrepreneurship. In 1981, the Foundation began to question why individuals are encouraged to "get a job" rather than to create one. Since that time the Foundation has committed over $40 million to promote the option of self-employment, improve the quality of entrepreneurship education, and help create a new generation of business owners.

Student Entrepreneur Award Sponsor
The mission of the American Institute for Economic Research is to produce useful economic analysis and information to help ordinary Americans protect their interests and those of the nation. By producing non-partisan and objective economic analysis, AIER seeks to foster greater understanding of the fundamental economic relationships affecting people in the United States, both as individuals and as members of a complex society.
AIER established a scholarship Fund in memory of C. Lowell Harriss, an economist whose groundbreaking theories on land tax reform led to a widening of public spaces and improved quality of life in the U.S. and beyond. He taught economics at Columbia University for 43 years, from 1938 to 1981.
In honor of Dr. Harriss and in recognition of the impact of entrepreneurship in stimulating the economy, AIER is sponsoring the Student Entrepreneur Award at NACCE2014 for community and technical college students who own and operate their own business while pursuing their college studies.
