Opportunities to Learn More about GSE

Next Virtual Info Session: Nov. 10 from 4-5 p.m. ET

The Governor's School for Entrepreneurs (GSE) will begin accepting applications for summer 2021 on Monday, Nov. 16. GSE brings teens together from across Kentucky, immerses them in a creative space, and arms them with the tools they need to unleash their entrepreneurial spirits. Participants gain vital entrepreneurial skills through the program to use as they enter the workplace or continue into higher education, and they develop a valuable network of mentors and fellow entrepreneurs. In addition, as a direct result of their participation in GSE, entrepreneurs qualify for some $3 million in scholarship opportunities from Kentucky's universities and colleges.

11 new businesses have been launched by young alumni of the GSE program. Others have filed for multiple patents and developed new ideas and relationships that sow the seeds for more business formation.

GSE has scheduled virtual events on Hopin this fall for prospective applicants and their families to learn about the GSE experience and dive into the application process. The link to register is below, as well as the schedule for events.
