Invitation Only.

The Social Impact Fellowship (SIF) is a partnership between UB’s School of Management and School of Social Work in collaboration with Blackstone LaunchPad. This fellowship connects 16 entrepreneurially and socially minded students to local nonprofits where they are encouraged to develop innovative solutions to issues affecting our community.

The fellowship program culminates on July 28, 2017 with the "Pitch for a Cause" idea competition. Student teams prepare a five-minute pitch about why their institution should receive additional funding for the project they worked on for the duration of their fellowship. The first-place team will win $2,000 of funding (for their SIF partner organization) and the second-place team will win $1,000 of funding.
