Phoenix Project offers scholarship to University of Richmond student

April 22nd, 2010 by Joslyn Bedell

The Phoenix Project's Social Innovation Program (SIP) is the nation's premier statewide model for identifying, educating and engaging our next generation of social innovators.  During an intensive six-week summer program, Phoenix equips top undergraduate and graduate students drawn from a competitive statewide pool with the knowledge, skills, relationships and courage to formulate sustainable and scalable solutions to our most pressing social challenges.

Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, scholarship funds are available for one Richmond student to participate in this summer's SIP session.  For more details on the program, visit http://www.phoenixproject.org/socialentrepreneurship/sip  or contact Greg Werkheiser at greg@phoenixproject.org or (703) 408-2002.
