Dare to Dream Grants and Mayleben Family Venture Shaping GrantsAugust 2, 2012
The Dare to Dream Grants and Mayleben Family Venture Shaping Grants are provided by the Samuel Zell and Robert H Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. The program is only open for students at the Ross School of Business and can range anywhere from 5 hundred to 10 thousand dollars in funding. Students have to meet deadlines and reach goals at certain times, such as formulating an idea, assessing potential businesses, and having a plan for launching these businesses.
Applications are accepted in September and January. The program has three different stages and students can apply for any stage. However, as soon as a business enters, it can not re-apply for the same stage or the stage before it. Three different grants are available: the Mayleben Family Venture Shaping Grant, the Dare to Dream Assessment Grant, and the Dare to Dream Integration Grant. Many students enter the program in order to get funding for their ideas and not just one, but a bunch of the applicants win the money each year.
