Musser Fellowship in Entrepreneurial Studies


 

 

 

The Warren V. Musser Fellowship in Entrepreneurial Studies was created to help support full-time and half-time graduate students who enroll in a Penn State Great Valley campus-based program.

The fellowship is designed for entrepreneurs who wish to increase their business knowledge and skills, and individuals who are passionate about starting their own business, leading a start-up company, or taking a leadership position in a rapidly-growing new or emerging firm.

New Students

A Musser Fellowship of $25,000 is available for full-time students beginning a Great Valley master’s degree. The fellow is expected to:

  • Enroll in 12 credits each semester (fall and spring) for the duration of the award
  • Maintain at least a 3.5 GPA
  • Work alongside faculty and pursue their research interests
  • Participate in in co-curricular learning projects, presentations, and various competitions sponsored by the REV-UP Center for Entrepreneurship, part of the Invent Penn State initiative

The award will be applied to tuition and fees for the fall and spring semesters; any unused portion will be provided to the recipient as a refund. Students who receive the award can re-apply in future academic years. There is no guarantee of continued funding in the future.
