The Property and Environment Research Center—PERC is accepting proposals for its Enviropreneur in Residence Program. The Fellowship(s) are awarded to aspiring or successful enviropreneurs, environmentalists who are making wealth out of trash, or otherwise, using entrepreneurship to promote environmentalism.
The Fellowship(s) include a cash stipend, office space and support, and a keen intellectual atmosphere in which to develop a business plan, commence operation of a new product or idea, take an incipient idea towards reality, or to otherwise promote enviropreneurism.
The Fellowships are often awarded to individuals who might be in residence in Bozeman during PERC's Enviropreneur Institute (PEI) so that EIR Fellows might interact with Fellows from the Institute. For more about the Institute, its soul, timing, and curriculum, visit Enviropreneurs .
Individuals who are interested in the EIR Fellowship should submit their application online.
Please include with your EIR application:
1. A two to five page proposal outing their project or idea
2. A resume or vita
3. Any other supporting materials they deem appropriate
There is no deadline for submission. The window is currently open.
Fellows are expected to spend some, but not necessarily all of their Fellowship time in residence in Bozeman. These terms are negotiable, and the applicant should post her availability in the proposal submitted.
Travel and housing expenses are to be covered by the Fellow. Individuals at PERC can help find housing, and at present, rental rates in Bozeman are inexpensive by historical standards.
Preference for Fellowship awards is afforded to individuals who have participated in the Enviropreneur Institute.
For additional information about these Fellowships and to discuss details, please feel free to contact PERC or me.
