If you’ve read my review of Zak Slayback’s The End of School, (or better yet, read the book) you know that he is a big supporter of entrepreneurship. Which is why I was very excited to get hear of this grant.
If you have a child (homeschooled or not!) between the ages of 16 and 22 with an entrepreneurial mindset, you should pay attention.
It’s one thing to talk about the importance of entrepreneurship among young people. It’s another thing to actually tangibly support entrepreneurship among young people.
So today I am putting my money where my mouth is.
What you need to know
The person applying must be between 16 and 22, in the US, and must have a product or business that has proof-of-concept.
Zak is awarding awarding $2,000 to young entrepreneurs in Spring 2018. The awards will be split into 1 $1,000 grant and 2 $500 grants.
How to apply
The application and details can be found here. Zak mentions that the focus of this grant is on young entrepreneurs in the Western Pennsylvania region (incl. northern West Virginia & eastern Ohio) – so if you happen to be in those regions, good for you!
But don’t get disheartened if you live elsewhere because applications from outside of the region will also be considered on a case-by-case basis.
