Elevate offers limited scholarships to our community via our program partners. 

We are proud to support anyone who has had a dream of starting their own businesses or starting their entrepreneurial journey. We have a number of scholarships available and are always looking for program partners to support our area through our different scholarships opportunities.

Elevate Lake Land College Initiative Scholarship

The Elevate Lake Land College Initiative is a partnership between Lake Land College and Elevate which aims to support individuals with tuition waivers for a 27 credit hour business development certificate.

 

The goal of this certificate is to better prepare entrepreneurs to understand what it takes to sustain and grow a business, while gaining a business certificate to an accredited institution.

This is a savings of $1,843.50 for the student.

 

They not only get access to the tuition waiver but also access to our mentors, our space and community of entrepreneurial individuals. Our scholarship will provide two high school individuals who are in need of an opportunity to continue their business and who have a dream to obtain or go to a college institution. 

Because the amount of $1,843.50 is too costly for some in our area, this simple scholarship will allow two individuals an opportunity to grow and develop their business and themselves
