EBV applications will be accepted from veterans with a “service-connected disability” (as designated by the Veterans Administration) who served on active duty after September 2001.
This program is entirely free of cost to the veteran. As a result of the generous support of the universities in the EBV consortium and the private giving of individuals and corporations, we are able to cover all costs (including travel, lodging and meals) for delegates accepted to the EBV.
The EBV program represents a unique opportunity for men and women who have served in the interest of America’s freedom, enabling them to take an important step toward realizing their economic independence through entrepreneurship. EBV is a selective, rigorous and intense educational initiative; accordingly, the application process is rigorous and selective.
Successful candidates for admission will demonstrate a strong interest in entrepreneurship, high motivation for owning and managing a business, and a high likelihood of successful completion of this intense training program. Applications for the 2015 programs are now being accepted on a rolling admissions basis.
