    The Impact Entrepreneurship Graduate Fellowship seeks to attract and support high-potential leaders from diverse backgrounds who are committed to creating positive social impact through entrepreneurship while pursuing a master's degree at The New School. Selected fellows are guaranteed a 50 percent scholarship for their course of study at The New School. If a program offers a scholarship of less than 50 percent, the Impact Entrepreneurship Fellowship will contribute funding to ensure a total scholarship of 50 percent. In addition to receiving this financial support, fellows benefit from curricular guidance, mentorship and advising, and participation in a cohort-based experience designed to help students develop the mindsets, skills, and sense of purpose needed to thrive as entrepreneurs in a rapidly changing world.
