BDIC Bright Idea Scholarship

BDIC students are creative and motivated, two characteristics that make them ideal entrepreneurs. We’re asking BDIC alumni and friends to support a scholarship to help student entrepreneurs make their bright ideas a reality.

The Bright Idea Scholarship will provide funding to BDIC students interested in starting their own business. The seed funding provided by the scholarship will help student awardees develop a proof of concept, market research, and product development.

BDIC already has a great track record in supporting two successful student business ideas:

  • Juke Snowboarding, founded by Tim Reilly ‘13, produces high-quality snowboards in central Massachusetts. "Spending the grant funds on materials allowed me to produce the most snowboards and led me to the first generation of profit for Juke Snowboarding."

 

  • Feat Socks, founded by Parker Burr ‘15, Taylor Offer ‘15 and Elijah Grundel ‘15  are selling their socks at retailers across the United States and Australia.

 

Your gift will help BDIC to support even more students with dreams of starting their own businesses. Because of your generosity last year, we were able to award the scholarship to BDIC student Karthike Mathur.  Help us award another student this year!

A bright future is made possible by bright ideas.  Please support BDIC students by giving to the Bright Idea Scholarship.
