The Farmingdale State College Alumni association has created an annual Farmingdale State College 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 business.
The project will be presented to students at the beginning of the Spring Semester. It requires submission of a new business plan which will be presented to and judged by a review committee. The judges will choose the best plan and the winner will then be awarded the grant funding of $2000 to supplement the startup of their business. *This competition is open to all students in all curriculums within the School of Business: Business Management, Global Business, Computer Systems, Economics, Sport Management, Urban Horticulture & Design, and Visual Communications.*
New business 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. A presentation schedule will be developed and the winner will be selected by April 10, 2017. The award will be presented to the winner in May (date to be determined.)
