Junior Achievement Fellowships offer an average of five (5) $10,000 fellowships each year.

  • Awards are given to students with at least two years’ experience in Junior Achievement, either as a mentor in high school or as an advisor in or after college. Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating students in grades K-12 about entrepreneurship, work readiness and financial literacy through experiential, hands-on programs.
  • Financial need is not a prerequisite for this fellowship, although the selection committee may consider it as one of several factors. The committee is primarily interested in the quality of your Junior Achievement experiences, your contributions to the program, and how the program has affected your personal and professional development.
  • Fellowships are awarded annually, and current recipients must re-apply for the fellowship each academic year.

An endowment to fund a number of Junior Achievement Fellowships at Harvard Business School was established by Royal Little, former Chairman of Textron, Inc.; the late James E. Robison, former head of Indian Head, Inc.; and the late Lawrence Fouraker, HBS Dean from 1970 to 1980.
