Apply for the Education Entrepreneur Fellowship


The Mind Trust will reopen the application process for the Education Entrepreneur Fellowship in early 2010. The Mind Trust mission is to dramatically improve public education for underserved students by empowering education entrepreneurs to develop or expand transformative education initiatives.

This year’s appointees will receive $90K/year for two years. It’s an open door, again, for Tablet, TouchScreen and mobile PC entrepreneurs to become Mind Trust Fellows. Propose one of those “transformative” projects in your heads.
