Offered by The Thiel Foundation
Are you a budding entrepreneur or inventor with a great idea? Further, have you dropped out of or decided not to attend college to pursue your idea? If so, we recommend applying for the Thiel Fellowship! The Fellowship consistently awards $100,000 to applicants who submit the most promising and impressive ideas. The fellowship is founded and funded by Peter Thiel, an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and political activist who co-founded Paypal amongst other companies. In order to apply for the Thiel Fellowship, you must be under 23 years of age and submit an application regarding your past work and current pursuits. Applications are accepted and awards are distributed on a rolling basis.
With that said, if you have a great idea that you think you won’t be able to carry out while in college, we encourage you to apply!
