WILLES CENTER PROJECTS
Willes Center Projects
Because of funds that have been provided by generous donors, we are able to offer students who are interested, regardless of major or minor, access to funds for starting a business. As a grant students are not expected to pay back the funds but are expected to work with the Willes Center staff in achieving predetermined metrics and goals.
Students that work with the Willes Center grant program will have an opportunity to learn how to manage a project, gain real-life experience with pitching an idea, and make their big idea a reality.
In order to apply for a grant students must download and fill out the Grant Proposal Form and then email it to the current Enactus President. The proposal will be reviewed and suggestions will be made. Upon approval the student will then give a presentation to the Willes Center Executive Board for final approval.
STEPS TO APPLY FOR A GRANT
You must be an active part/full time student at BYU-Hawaii in order to be eligible for a business grant.
Click on either the "Impact Proposal" or "For Profit" button above in order to download a proposal form.
Apply first by sending your completed project proposal form to Makaiah Gorham through his email: firstname.lastname@example.org
