    Future Flyer Pitch

    Scholarship competition for future entrepreneurs

    High school juniors and seniors: If you have big ideas and the passion to make a difference, you could win a trip to an in-person, start-up-style competition and up to $40,000 in scholarships over four years to the University of Dayton.

    How to Enter

    To enter the competition, submit a 2-minute video that presents a solution to a challenge faced by your local community. You may enter as a team (up to four students per team).

    Videos will be evaluated by a panel of judges. Selected teams will be invited to the University of Dayton campus for a start-up-style event in late March, where students will present a 2-minute pitch to a panel of judges in person.


    Each member of the finalist teams will receive a scholarship to the University of Dayton:

    • 1st place: $40,000 over four years
    • 2nd place: $20,000 over four years
    • 3rd place: $10,000 over four years
    • Finalists who present on campus: $4,000 textbook scholarship over four years

    All participants will receive a UD t-shirt and certificate of participation. We will also award scholarships for finalists to attend our summer Entrepreneurship 101 program, with scholarships ranging from $500 to the full program cost.


    Video submissions due December 1, 2017.
