Getting students to stick. How can Massachusetts persuade more of the students who come here to get an education to stick around afterward? One key, says David Aronoff, is making it easier for them to connect with the business community, with networking events and conferences. Aronoff, a general partner at Flybridge Capital Partners in Boston, blogged about a new website and student scholarship program launched by his firm: Stay in MA.
Aimed at helping to encourage our brightest students to stay local as they think about starting companies, Stay in MA is a new scholarship program for Massachusetts-based college students focused on fostering entrepreneurship and innovation between students and the local business community by providing financial assistance to students interested in joining or attending the events of technology and business organizations in the region.
Stay in MA scholarships are available for any undergraduate or graduate student currently enrolled in a college or university based in Massachusetts. Scholarships will be awarded up to $100 per event or organization membership fee. Students may apply for up to 3 scholarships per calendar year. Scholarship applications are available at http://www.stayinma.com/apply.
