How to Apply for 2014
The 2014 EBV in-residence program projected run date is June 2014.
All classes will be held at Turnbull Conference Center at Florida State University's main campus in Tallahassee, Florida.
Eligibility: EBV applications will be accepted from veterans with a 'service-connected disability' as designated by the Veterans Administration, and who have served on active duty after September 2001.
Costs and Logistics: This program is entirely free to the veteran. As a result of the generous support of the EBV Universities and the private giving of individuals and corporations, we are able to cover all costs (including travel, lodging, and meals) for delegates accepted to the EBV.
Application Procedures: The EBV program represents a unique opportunity for men and women who have sacrificed for America's freedom to take an important step toward realizing their own freedom – economic freedom – through entrepreneurship. EBV is a selective, rigorous, and intense educational initiative that has been created to make a difference. Accordingly, the application process itself is rigorous and selective.
Successful candidates for admission will demonstrate a strong interest in entrepreneurship, high motivation for owning and managing a business, and a high likelihood of successful completion of this intense training program. Click here to apply online.
Program Schedule: Specific dates for the EBV will vary by University. You will be assigned to an EBV campus following your admission to the program. That assignment will be determined, in large part, based on your proximity to an EBV campus. Generally however, the schedule for Florida State University is as follows:
1. May: Commence online module
2. June 3-11: Commence EBV Residency – Nine-day residency at Florida State University
3. June: Commence one-year mentor program
Applications are accepted on a rolling admissions basis, which means application for the program is always open. However, while there are no application deadlines, admission is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Early application is encouraged.
