    Hillman Entrepreneurs Program Application







    The Hillman Entrepreneurs Program seeks students with entrepreneurial potential.  Students who have an entrepreneurial mindset and who have already demonstrated real-life business experiences or who have ideas that show promise for future entrepreneurial endeavors are encouraged to join this unique program. In addition, intrapreneurs who show promise of becoming future leaders within existing organizations are a strong fit for this program. The goal of the Hillman Entrepreneurs Program is to graduate ethical leaders who will become successful in the communities they came from, who will energize those communities and will have positive economic impact on the local economy.

    Characteristics that describe Hillman students include determination, motivation, creativity, persistence and the potential for ethical leadership. Students that demonstrate characteristics that can lead to entrepreneurial success in their daily lives and show a potential for both academic and entrepreneurial success are encouraged to apply.

    The David H. and Suzanne D. Hillman Family Foundation created the Hillman Entrepreneurs Program by partnering with the University of Maryland (UM) and Prince George’s Community College (PGCC). Since 2006, the program has supported students who might not otherwise be able to afford a college education by starting their college career at PGCC on scholarship, including books, and then supporting them in a seamless transfer to UM in pursuit of their bachelor’s degree. The Hillman Entrepreneurs Program is a vibrant community of students that share a common entrepreneurial mindset but have a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and aspirations.
