PERC is accepting proposals for its Enviropreneur in Residence (EIR) 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.
Fellowships 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.
Individuals who are interested in the EIR Fellowship should submit their application online. Please include with your EIR application:
- A two to five page proposal outing their project or idea
- A resume or vita
- Any other supporting materials they deem appropriate
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 his or her availability in the proposal submitted.
Travel and housing expenses are to be covered by the Fellow (individuals at PERC can help find housing).
Preference for fellowship awards is afforded to individuals who have participated in PERC's Enviropreneur Institute.
2012 applications are now closed and 2013 applications are coming soon!
For additional information about these Fellowships and to discuss details, please feel free to contact PERC or the Director Emeriitus:
