About


2017 Hagerman and Whitner Scholars from left to right: Hui (Sisle) Cheng, Adham Habbas, Jacinda Kitts, and 2017 Whitener Scholar Nicholas Matthies.

The Student Scholars are the face of entrepreneurship and innovation for the University and community.  The program is a competitive student scholarship based on the student’s interest in entrepreneurship and innovation as well as their demonstrated ability to be accomplished academically. Students awarded this distinction will be expected to assist with Center activities, such as the Business Plan Competition and the High School Entrepreneurship Institute.  Hagerman Scholars are expected to be involved with the Student Entrepreneurs Society and the Innovation Incubator.  Hagerman Scholars will also serve as ambassadors for the Center through its various activities and outreach efforts.

The Hagerman and Whitner Scholars will gain valuable experience working with Center related projects and with faculty who are teaching and conducting research in entrepreneurship and innovation.  The Center will offer opportunities for the Student Scholars to meet with community business leaders as they build a network of professional contacts.
