iScholars is a grass-roots, student-led initiative to promote the entrepreneurial mindset across Saint Louis University campus.
In Fall 2011 the iScholars (innovation scholars) program was launched. The iScholars program, where students learn by leading, are expected to promote the entrepreneurial mindset across the campus and engage in different roles and activities, such as: community outreach, innovation leadership, creative thinking and design projects. Students involved have access to experts from the field for several hours each week and a tinker lab, that provides the tools needed to take their ideas to the next level.
How to Apply
Students in the program are selected through an application and interview process from a highly competitive field. Applications are accepted fall and spring semester. Qualified applicants should have a 3.25 GPA (freshman will not be asked to submit GPA), a strong resume, outstanding faculty references and a compelling personal statement about why they should be selected for the program. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the program advisors.
