The Changemaker Fellowship is a unique state wide effort to integrate students from Rhode Island’s 11 universities in the effort to increase awareness and resources for student entrepreneurs across the state.

- Participation in meetings which includes student led discussions and workshop presentations by inspiring entrepreneurs and leaders
