About Slavin Family Foundation:

The Slavin Family Foundation provides support to dedicated students that have a desire to contribute to humanity and the ability and discipline to bring entrepreneurial ideas to life.

The Foundation’s main activity is the Slavin Fellowship, and the Foundation also organizes an annual Slavin Fellowship Summit to bring together current and past Fellows. The 2017 and 2018 Summits were held at Rice University and Georgetown University, respectively. The 2019 Summit will be held May 29-June 1, 2019 at McGill University in Montreal.

Slavin’s hope is that the long-term impact of the Slavin Family Foundation will be as a meaningful supporter of independent thinking and the exploring spirit that pushes the boundaries of what is possible.

The Opportunity:

The Fellowship program leverages the expertise and connections of Foundation chairman Nick Slavin, the Foundation’s board and advisory board, and their networks, to provide advice, support, and connections to Fellowship awardees. Fellows also receive a $2,500 scholarship. The scholarship component of the Fellowship reflects our support of higher education. We believe that just because a student is committed to finishing college or graduate school doesn’t mean he or she has to wait to begin an impactful entrepreneurial project. 

The Fellowship was designed with the belief that helping and encouraging the most gifted and dedicated young leaders with a heart to help humanity is one of the most efficient and leveraged ways that we can make a positive difference in the world. In its support of entrepreneurial students who don’t wish to drop out of school, the remote access it provides to a variety of advisors and resources, and its openness to entrepreneurial projects in any field of endeavor, we believe that no program quite like this exists.

Selection Requirements: 

  • full-time students in college or graduate school 

  • pursuing or planning to purse an independent entrepreneurial project

  • high quality of independent project

  • demonstrated character, attitude, motivation, and discipline

  • intellect and ability 

How to Apply: 

Each application is to come in the form of a nomination of a student by a “sponsoring professor,” a university faculty member (who need not hold the title of “professor”).

Must include:

  • a written statement from professor

  • a written statement from student

  • a copy of student’s resume

  • a copy of student’s academic transcript

Deadline to Apply: October 15
