Propel Application 2019
The Propel Program seeks to empower women students from any Northwestern school to be entrepreneurial in a field of their choice, from the visual arts to technology.

Stipends of up to $1,000 will be awarded to 10-20 "Propellers" in early February 2019 for work on individual projects to be presented at a campus showcase June 6, 2019. Projects can range from a news podcast to an art installation, a socially impactful civic initiative to a for-profit business idea.

In addition to receiving a stipend, Propellers will be connected with student and professional mentors February - June, and may be invited to serve as a Propel Ambassador in the fall of 2019.

Applications must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CST January 14, 2019. The 2019 Propellers will be announced February 1, 2019.

By submitting this application, you agree -- in the event you are named a Propeller -- to provide updates on your project, including information on how the stipend is being spent, in February, March, April and May, and to present your project in person June 6, 2019.
