Grant Applications Open Now until October 8, 2021

Apply for the 2021 Collegiate Women of Color Grant, Powered by Cummins Inc.

WBENC & Cummins Inc. are providing $3k – $10k grants to student entrepreneurs and recent grads.

Statistics show that minority and female business owners often experience greater difficulties in securing access to capital and receiving funding to grow their businesses.

WBENC and Cummins Inc. are working to address this disparity with the WBENC 2021 Collegiate Women of Color Grant Powered by Cummins Inc., a funding initiative to support emerging minority female entrepreneurs with innovative companies focused in the areas of STEM and sustainability. The grant program will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place financial grants of $10,000, $7,000, and $3,000 to minority female entrepreneurs currently enrolled in college or university, or recently graduated within the last six months. Entrepreneurs selected for interviews will also receive specific training for business owners provided by Cummins Inc. Applications are open now until October 8 at 11:59pm ET.

Don’t miss our informational webinar on September 24, 1-2pm ET to join Cummins Inc. and WBENC to learn more and ask questions about the grant program, the criteria and why you should participate. Register here.
