So you’ve got a great business idea and want to go to college… but can’t afford either? A new promotion could kill two birds with one stone.
Connecticut’s University of New Haven is offering a full tuition waiver to a student able to come up with an incredible business idea. Prospective students can earn a full tuition waiver, regardless of family finances, by winning the Dean’s Scholarship Challenge – a contest that asks students to impress the judges with their business idea.
Contestants are being asked to create a Facebook page with an overview of the company and show why the business is unique or interesting.
The contest was proposed by UNH’s new business school dean, Larry Flanagan, the former MasterCard executive responsible for the “Priceless” campaign. Up to four students will win the full-tuition scholarships valued around $120,000. Twenty others will win iPads, and 50 others will each get $250 credits to the university’s bookstore.
