Overview

Embracing entrepreneurship is vital to the long-term prosperity of our society. During this 3-day seminar at Lindenwood University (for ages 14-17), you'll explore economic thinking, world issues, and the entrepreneurial mindset as you discover how entrepreneurs change the world.

What will you do? You'll experience self-discovery while tackling activities like the Trading Game and gain critical thinking skills that you can apply to every day life. You'll also get to bounce ideas off of dynamic speakers and challenge traditional classroom ideas. During fun socials and open discussion sessions, you'll make life-long connections with other top students who are just as curious and driven to get ahead.

After it's over, you'll have a memorable experience that you can share with college recruiters or add to your resume.

We have awesome news! Until March 31st you can attend for just $79 (half off the regular price). We still have a limited number of travel and tuition reimbursement scholarships available, and many students receive one or both of these scholarships. It's free to apply (it only takes about 10 minutes), so start your application today!

Travel Information

St. Charles, Missouri

You should plan to arrive at Lindenwood University (209 S Kingshighway St, St. Charles, MO 63301) no later than 3:30 pm on Tuesday, July 11th, and all participants are required to depart by 12:00 pm on Friday, July 14th.

If you are flying, plan to fly into the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL). Lindenwood University is approximately 10 miles west of St. Louis, and FEE will provide a shuttle from the airport to campus (and back).  We will email you details about the shuttle as the seminar gets closer.

Because of the travel time to and from the campus, please choose a flight that arrives before 1:30 pm on Tuesday, July 11th and a flight that departs after 9:30 am on Friday, July 14th.

You will be staying in traditional dorm rooms with a roommate of your same gender and will share a community bathroom with other students on your hall, also of your same gender.  Linens are NOT provided, so you will need to bring your own bedding (sheets sized Twin XL or a sleeping bag), a pillow, and a towel. Make sure to bring any toiletries you might need as well.
