What is Summer Venture in Management (SVMP)?
A long-standing Harvard Business School tradition, SVMP exposes high-potential college students to the HBS MBA experience for one week during the summer between junior and senior year. SVMP participants engage in HBS case method instruction, which helps them to develop a broad understanding of today’s business environment and encourages them to consider business school as an option after college graduation. It’s an extraordinary opportunity to strengthen your problem-solving skills, build lasting relationships with HBS faculty and peers, and open your eyes to possibilities for your future that you may never have dreamed possible.
Wondering whether business school is a good fit for you? We encourage you to apply for SVMP and explore what an MBA program has to offer. You might just discover a new direction for your future.
Who is eligible to apply?
Participants are selected based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership, and personal characteristics. Because SVMP is designed to help promote educational diversity and opportunity in business, we also take into consideration whether the applicant is:

• from a family with little or no business education or experience; and/or
• a student at a school from which graduates are underrepresented in business (e.g., a community college’s four-year degree program or a predominately minority college).
All eligible applicants must have a 2.5 or higher grade point average and have earned between 60-100 cumulative credit hours by the application deadline. Priority is given to students with 15-30 credits remaining to graduate. Student must be a business major and enrolled at Bowie State University during the semester which the funds will be dispersed. The application deadline is Friday, March 15, 2014 and will be awarded for the fall 2014 semester. Scholarship winners will be announced at the annual Pillars of Success Awards Ceremony in Spring 2014. (Please see the application for more details.)
