In line with CMC’s mantra of “learn by doing”, the RLCIE follows a similar path for students interested in joining the Fellows Program. All students that apply prior to the deadline and are in good academic standing will have the opportunity to earn their way into the Fellows Program. Rather than making decisions based on an interview, applicants will be required to participate in a series of six 1st Year CORE workshops spread across the Fall and Spring semesters, participate in a 1st Year Cohort pitch contest, and conduct office hours once per month with the RLCIE Executive Director. These events are open exclusively to students actively seeking to join the RLCIE Fellows Program. All students that complete those requirements will earn their way into the program and become RLCIE Fellows Candidates.

Application Details:

  • Application deadline: September 24, 2023 (11:55pm)
  • To apply, students must be in good academic standing
  • The written application should include a resume, cover letter with a statement of demonstrated interest in innovation and entrepreneurship, and a copy of the applicants’ transcripts (1st year college students should share their high school transcripts)
