The Foundation’s main activity is the Slavin Fellowship, which offers support, mentorship, and a scholarship to a limited number of undergraduate and graduate students pursuing potentially world-changing entrepreneurial projects. Fellows also receive a $2,500 scholarship, and students can apply by being nominated by a sponsoring professor with whom the Slavin Foundation can coordinate with throughout the year and who can help review the student’s work.
