About the University Innovation Fellows

Apply now!

The University Innovation Fellows are a national community of students who work to ensure that their peers gain the necessary attitudes, skills, and knowledge required for them to compete in the economy of the future. To accomplish this, the Fellows advocate for lasting institutional change and create opportunities for students to engage in entrepreneurship, innovation, creativity, design thinking and venture creation at their schools. Under the direction of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), which is funded by the National Science Foundation as a partnership between Stanford University and VentureWell, these student leaders work with their peers from colleges and universities across the country to catalyze greater levels of innovation and venture activity on their campuses.

Utah Valley University is the first institution from the state of Utah chosen to sponsor University Innovation Fellows on their campus. Five UVU students will be selected each year to attend intensive workshops at Google Headquarters and Stanford University in Palo Alto and receive additional training through the program. After training, Fellows pursue projects that will expose more students to creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

Utah Valley University proudly sponsors an Innovation Fellows group on its campus due to the significant contributions of Technology Management student Tanner Wheadon.
