The ASU Kern Project is a partner in the Kern Entrepreneurial Engineering Network (KEEN), a collaboration of hundreds of engineering faculty nationwide educating engineering students with an entrepreneurial mindset so they can create personal, economic and societal value through a lifetime of meaningful work. In addition to the traditional technical skillset, student learning is enriched with an entrepreneurial mindset that fosters curiosity, connections and the creation of value — the 3C’s.

The next call for summer and falls proposals begins Wednesday, March 8, 2017; the submission deadline is Sunday, March 26, 2017.

The KEEN Professorship is open to all Fulton faculty, including tenured, tenure-track, lecturers and adjunct instructors. To learn more about the grant opportunity and application process, please visit the Startup Center Website.
