About this grant

The Aspen Institute’s Innovations for the Microenterprise Field project provides funding for developing college student leaders in university-based microenterprise programs. Mott support has helped the project assist with the development of a campus microfinance alliance to help volunteer students start and strengthen services for microentrepreneurs. This grant will allow the grantee to support the institutionalization of the campus microfinance alliance to offer internship programs for student leaders, and to conduct research on student-based programs.
