From 2006 to 2015, Wharton Entrepreneurship provided Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship Awards. Starting in 2016, this program is now known as the Startup Internship Awards.

Ambassadors of Entrepreneurship

Students awarded the Fellowship are expected, in the year following their internship, to serve as Ambassadors of Entrepreneurship. As Ambassadors, it is their responsibility to work with Wharton Entrepreneurship staff to promote the entrepreneurial career path to the Penn student community, and to assist in providing continuity for this program after the summer internships.
