The NYU Female Founders Fellowship provides extensive training, mentorship, and networking opportunities to student entrepreneurs at NYU who are committed to advancing gender equality in entrepreneurship. Female Founders Fellows will also have the opportunity to apply for loan alleviation grants of up to $50,000. This is an opportunity for NYU student entrepreneurs to build networks with renowned founders and investors across the US, to hone their leadership skills, and to get financial support for their ventures and to help alleviate their student loan debt all while contributing to closing the gender gap in entrepreneurship.
NYU students may apply for the fellowship in November and in March, via the same application as for the next upcoming Startup Sprint. The Female Founders Fellowship shares an application with the Startup Sprint, and we encourage you to apply for both programs.
