Werth Innovators Leadership Development
Ambassadors for entrepreneurship
Werth Innovators are student ambassadors for entrepreneurship and innovation at UConn who play a central role in building interest and participation in our wide range of programs. They are selected annually from a pool of freshmen applicants and receive a $3,000 scholarship that includes mentoring and unique, transformative experience during their sophomore year. There are currently seventeen Werth Innovators for the 2020-2021 academic year who were selected based upon their innovative projects and interest in increasing student involvement in entrepreneurship and innovation at the university.
