UI Offers Grants for Entrepreneurship Educators

The Jacobson Institute for Youth Entrepreneurship at the University of Iowa will select educators from around the state to teach an entrepreneurship unit to secondary students in their schools and organizations.

Educators will be selected from Iowa school districts and other organizations interested in teaching entrepreneurship education. Selected educators will receive the "Running a Business Plan Competition" curriculum at no cost and those who implement the curriculum will receive a $250 mini-grant. Selected schools and organizations will receive a step-by-step curriculum to teach students how to develop a plan for starting their own businesses. The funding for the program comes from a grant from the Jacobson Institute and the Ames-based Community Vitality Center.
