Governor's School for Entrepreneurs taking applications for its second summer session

Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs which will be held for the second year on the campus of Georgetown College.
Innovative high school students who believe they have an idea that might be valuable should apply online before Jan. 31.
The GSE is an opportunity for students to take their ideas to the next level, especially if they are developing ones that solve a problem, fill a need or bring useful information to a user’s fingertips. That spirit of invention is just what sponsors hope to unleash in Kentucky’s youth during the three-week session June 22 through July 12.
GSE’s unique program brings teachers, schools, universities, graduate students, start-up technology companies, experienced entrepreneurs, scientists and engineers all together into a dynamic summer learning experience.
GSE selects students for the program by identifying those showing a passion for creating a product or idea and who possess a learning style that will thrive in a creative and innovative environment.

Limited to 50 participants, students will be grouped into small teams of no more than seven, based on their product idea or area of interest.
Kentucky Science & Technology Corporation will manage the three-week GSE program. The GSE is patterned after the very successful Governor’s Scholars Program and the Governor’s School for the Arts.
