Internship Fellowships

The Kenan-Flagler Center for Entrepreneurial Studies (CES) works in close coordination with the MBA Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital Club (EVC Club) to offer fellowship programs for MBA students who are interested in pursuing a dynamic and iterative career as a Founder, Funder, and/or innovative Growth Executive. Students interested in interning at startups, growth centric companies, and venture capital firms should consider reaching out to the EVC Club leadership and CES to inquire on the application process in the fall of their 1st MBA year as well as connect with current 2nd year MBA fellowship recipients to learn more about the opportunities. This past year’s fellowship recipients were Jerome Trehy, Bo Rhyne, and Jeremy Ford.

  • Carolina Venture Fellows (CVF)
    The Center works closely with the MBA EVC Club to coordinate this fellowship program to connect entrepreneurial students interested in venture capital/alternative investments with venture capital firms. Students can seek guidance in sourcing and approaching VC firms to work with over the summer, or find ones independently. Encouraging career pursuits in alternative, high-growth investment firms, the EVC Club offers fellowships to first year students who are interested in working with a VC firm over the summer in lieu of a traditional MBA internship. The CVF fellowship is offered to supplement internship compensation at high-growth venture firms where funding is often limited. Selection involves an application and interview process.
