The Center for Rural Development has selected 25 students from Southern and Eastern Kentucky to attend the 2019 Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (ELI).

ELI is a summer leadership camp for student entrepreneurs. ELI provides high school students in Southern and Eastern Kentucky with an in-depth look at what it takes to start their own business venture — from idea development to building a model prototype of their business concept.

The Center for Rural Development partners with Kentucky Highlands Investment Corporation and Eastern Kentucky University to develop the program. During the camp, ELI business teams will compete in the Business Concept Challenge competition. Members of the winning team will earn a $16,000 provost scholarship from EKU.
