As a student entrepreneur, what does Global Citizenship mean to you? If you could design a project to live out that definition, what would it look like?

The Entrepreneurship program and the Institute for Global Citizenship embrace the core values of Macalester: Academic Excellence, Multiculturalism, Internationalism and Civic Engagement. How do we as entrepreneurs draw from these values to live out global citizenship?

The Live it Dream it program provides funding for entrepreneurial projects with awards ranging from $500-$2000 in J-Term, followed by an opportunity to apply for summer funding of up to $10,000. 

The Live it Dream it Fund funds students who identify an opportunity or problem and propose an innovative solutions. We are looking for your creativity and innovation in solving emerging or prevailing problems. The Live It Dream it program has been a huge success, growing each year since its inception in 2010. Macalester students continue to inspire us with their passion, creativity and incredible embodiment of global citizenship.
