Class of 2005 Grant


Class of 2005 Grant

The Class of 2005 is excited to support your projects in entrepreneurship. The ‘05s know that Dartmouth students are always thinking about how to make the world a better place. For this reason, their endowment will provide funding each year for a proposal in the entrepreneurship space.


The Class of 2005 Grant for Entrepreneurship, part of the Magnuson Center's Founder Grant program, facilitates the start and development of Dartmouth-founded projects that have shown promise and traction. The Class of 2005 Grant awards up to $2,500 and will be used as an accelerant to take an existing project to the next level. Successful applicant teams have ambitious entrepreneurial plans with current traction, exhibit solid background research of the idea, and demonstrate high commitment to both learning and executing on their ideas.


At this time, the Class of 2005 Grant is open to enrolled full-time undergraduate Dartmouth students who are either the founder or one of the co-founders of the venture.

A maximum of one Class of 2005 Grant per primary founder per academic year, regardless of venture, will be granted.
