Kauffman Entrepreneurial Year (KEY) Program
The University of Rochester is one of eight institutions nationwide selected by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation to receive a major, multiyear grant to make entrepreneurship education an integral ingredient of academic activity. This initiative includes the creation of the Kauffman Entrepreneurial Year (KEY) Program that provides students with the opportunity to devote one or two semesters, tuition free, to the study and practice of entrepreneurship.
Qualified students may propose to devote as much as an entire academic year to internships, special projects, business plan development, research into various facets of entrepreneurship, or analysis of how culture and public policy influence entrepreneurial activity. Participation is open to all undergraduates at the University.
