ASHLAND, OH - A grant has been awarded to Ashland University from the Burton D. Morgan Foundation. 

The $50,000 grant will support programming in the Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. The grant is part of $1.5 million dollars intended to promote entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education for youth, college students and adults across Ohio. 

"We are very grateful to the Burton D. Morgan Foundation for this grant." Dr. Elad Granot, dean of Ashland University's Dauch College of Business and Economics, said. "Part of the funding will be used to develop a curriculum for a course on innovation and creativity and determine the feasibility of such a course being part of Ashland's core curriculum."

The funding will also allow the Morgan center to grow its speaker series and its campus-wide programming, according to Thomas Sudow, Director of Morgan Center. 

"It will allow Ashland University students to participate in more entrepreneurial student contests and the Center will be able to offer a Start-up Academy to allow students to learn about and launch their own businesses," Sudow said. "Since 2008, more than 50 businesses have been established by Ashland Students and alumni. The academy will teach skills to students from across the University to be able to follow their dreams and launch a business."
