The Colorado School of Mines has created a program to promote the creative and innovative actions of students and to encourage students to think about the options for entrepreneurship in their lives.
The University Innovation Fellowship recently named six Mines students as fellows: Mallory Britz, Trevor Clevenger, Daniel Dickason, Tara Maestas, Asya Sergoyan. and Nicholas Yuan. Having completed training, the students will work to start entrepreneurial projects, hold events that educate other students and collaborate with teachers to come up with plans for new classes.
Fellows will be chosen twice per year, after which time they will complete six weeks of training and meet with important individuals in the University Innovation Fellows Annual Meet-up, which is held in the Silicon Valley.
The group's umbrella organization, the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation, has trained over 600 students from nearly 150 institutions since its inception.
