The McPherson County Entrepreneurship Community Board recently approved a $5,000 Partnership Grant administered by the McPherson Chamber of Commerce to the McPherson College Horizon Fund.
The Horizon Fund at McPherson College is a micro grant program that started four years ago to lift up student ideas. The goal of fund is to infuse entrepreneurship across campus. Over the last 4 years the Horizon Fund has empowered over 200 McPherson College students to start businesses, social ventures, and entrepreneurial initiatives. The co-founders of the Horizon Fund (McPherson College faculty and staff) continue to listen to ideas and award grants.
To apply, McPherson College students apply and pitch their idea to the Horizon Fund Committee. The committee provides advice and next steps for the students inevitably awarding them a micro grant of $25-$500.
