Thiel Foundation Gives 20 Young Entrepreneurs $100,000 Grants

It's called the Thiel Fellowship, and it's a very different kind of grant for young entrepreneurs. In fact, it is often controversial. Why? Because it's offered to young students who are in college and are interested in dropping out of college for two years to pursue their creative, entrepreneurial projects--all funded by the Thiel Foundation.

Fellowship/grant program

The program is enticing for young visionary thinkers, scientists, and entrepreneurs who want an opportunity to bring their projects to life. The two-year commitment gives them a chance to see what they can do as entrepreneurs. They will learn outside the classroom by actually doing and will be supported during their fellowship by numerous resources. Candidates from around the world may apply.
