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 two-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 the spring, where students will present a two-minute pitch to a panel of judges in person.
