The Elfenworks Foundation, working with Elfenworks Productions, LLC and domestic and international university partners, is working hard to foster a new wave of student social entrepreneurs.
The Elfenworks Foundation, in partnership with Kiev Taras Schevchenko National University, is pleased to announce a first-ever-in-Ukraine Elfenworks Student Competition on Social Entrepreneurship, in Kiev, Ukraine. Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, a classic university with a distinct research profile, is the leading contemporary academic and educational hub of Ukraine. The staff at the University have a broad range of formal achievements recognized, such as the State Prize of Ukraine in Science and Technology, as well as awards from the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and branches of the National Academies of Sciences.
The Elfenworks Foundation, in partnership with California State University at Monterey Bay and Professor Lisa Watson have combined forces to offer a scholarship opportunity to students who are studying the social entrepreneurship methodology we call The Seven Pillars. Founded in 1994 on the former site of Fort Ord by educators and community leaders, CSUMB provides over 7,600 students an extraordinary opportunity to learn on a residential campus just one mile from the shores of the beautiful Monterey Bay.
The Elfenworks “Star of Hope” scholarship award is offered in partnership with the College of Urban Economics and Public Administration at Capital University of Economics and Business, in Beijing, China. Founded in 1956, Capital University of Business and Economics (CUEB) took its current form in 1995 after the merger of the Beijing College of Economics and the Beijing Institute of Finance & Trade. Over the last 60 years, CUEB has grown into a modern multidisciplinary university, a leading municipal university in the city of Beijing, with strengths in six major subject areas including economics, management, law, literature and science, and engineering, of which economics and management are its core disciplines.The inaugural “Star of Hope” Scholar recipient, Zhang Tiancheng, aspires to cleanse the air of Beijing, a laudable goal.
Students, don’t see your college listed above? Just because your college doesn’t have an Elfenworks scholarship doesn’t mean they don’t have any sort of scholarship for getting involved in the greater good. Go find out. After all, there’s no harm inquiring, right? And if you live in the USA, check out Campus Moviefest, the “world’s largest student film festival.” Your creative voice can make a real difference, so don’t miss your chance to participate in our Elfenworks Campus Moviefest Student Social Justice Award.
Students, keep making those great ripples for a better tomorrow for us all!
