ACCESS AND OPPORTUNITY: IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES FOR ALL LEHIGH STUDENTS

Since its inception eight years ago, the Baker Institute has accepted hundreds of students into immersive experiences such as LehighSiliconValley and the Hatchery. Students from across disciplines have shared that these opportunities were “transformational” and unlike any other in their Lehigh education. We are proud to accept deserving students into these much sought after programs, regardless of their ability to pay and we want to make sure all of the Baker Institute's immersive experiences remain available to all students.

 

Curricular programs, like LSV and the Hatchery, carry not only the costs of tuition and program fees, but also require students to forgo earning opportunities that would cover necessary expenses, such as housing and food. The Baker Institute is able to offer “cost of living” grants to students who otherwise would not be able to afford these immersive experiences. To do this, we rely on the philanthropic support of partners like you. If you would like to join others in making sure these immersive experiences are available to all students, please consider making a gift.

EDUCATION AND IMPACT: THE NEXT GENERATION OF ENTREPRENEURIAL THINKING & DOING

Whether it’s bringing Lehigh students to California to meet with top venture capitalists, or designing opportunities for students to win real money to fund their entrepreneurial dreams, the Baker Institute is here for every Lehigh student to have the chance to do something big. Our programs span from the classroom, to the makerspaces, from South Mountain, to New Delhi, India. To provide Lehigh’s entrepreneurs with the latest in technology, talent, and experiences, the Baker Institute needs the support of our community more than ever. If you would like to contribute to the elevation of what entrepreneurial education can be, please consider making a gift.

Whatever your passions and interests, you can make a big difference.
