Student Alumni Grant (FSAG) Competition

The Farmingdale State College Alumni Association has created an annual Farmingdale Student Alumni Grant (FSAG) to be awarded to a student for development of an entrepreneurial business plan. The goal is to provide a platform for entrepreneurial endeavors and professional growth for a deserving student while fostering a continued alumni connection with the student and their new business.Alumni Association logo

Students are required to submit a new business plan which will be presented to a panel of judges who will choose the winning plan. The winners will then be awarded the grant funding of $2000 to supplement the startup of their business. All currently enrolled students in the School of Business are eligible and must present a thorough and comprehensive business plan.
New business ideas are not restricted in any way and should be as creative as possible. Selection criteria will be based on idea development, financial planning, innovativeness, functionality, and presentation.
