Announcement to all Elon students with entrepreneurial tendencies, and a desire to make a social impact within the community:

The Student Government Association has created the Acorn Fund. Two $4,500 prizes from the Fund are expected to be awarded on a yearly basis to help students’ ideas flourish.

The Acorn Fund is designated for Elon University students to financially support an original, innovative, and feasible invention, a for-profit or nonprofit company/organization, or other initiatives with the potential for positive impact beyond the classroom.

While there are many mechanisms of monetary support for students interested in undergraduate research and implementing events for the student body, SGA felt there was a need to provide financial support to individuals pursuing other projects and ideas. Any Elon University student, excluding those who are in their final semester, is eligible to apply for the Acorn Fund.

Interested applicants must attend an information session and workshop on Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in Moseley 213.

For more information stop by the SGA office in Moseley 213, or look for the Student Government Association table at College Coffee!
