Orr Entrepreneurial Fellowships, named for former Indiana Governor Bob Orr, offer special opportunities for college graduates to break into the professional world through paid positions with some of Indiana’s most dynamic, high-growth companies.  During their two-year tenure, Orr Fellows gain executive-level mentorship at their host companies, participate in monthly business leader meetings arranged for them, take part in various group service projects, and join a peer network of like-minded individuals.

Candidates must be current college seniors at the time of application (or have graduated within the current academic year) and have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better on a four-point scale.  Candidates should also have demonstrated leadership potential and a strong interest in entrepreneurial business or organizational leadership.  Further, candidates must either be graduating from an Indiana college or university or be natives of Indiana graduating from a college or university in another state.  The program welcomes applications from students in all academic disciplines.
