SUNY Plattsburgh Bachelor’s in Entrepreneurship Program Gets Three New Grants
Three external grant proposals were funded during the Fall 2010 semester to enhance the entrepreneurship program at SUNY Plattsburgh, the only four-year degree program of its kind within SUNY.
The first grant – $5,820 from the Faculty Enrichment Program at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, D.C. – supports the development of a new course on Canadian entrepreneurship that will be incorporated into the entrepreneurship program and be open to Canadian studies majors.
The second gift, $190,000 funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s FIPSE North American Mobility Program, is a four-year grant that will be shared with the University of North Dakota and support student exchanges between the partner schools.
The third grant, $5,500 from the Charles G. Koch Foundation, provides funding for the launch of a national honor society in entrepreneurship that will be housed at SUNY Plattsburgh – Sigma Nu Tau Entrepreneurship Honor Society.
