The Sofi Tucker Foundation and Sundial Brands have partnered with Babson College to establish the #SheaMoisture scholarship to fully fund 10 young women to attend Babson College’s Summer Study for High School Students. Scholarship recipients are awarded from countries all over the world, including the United States, Rwanda, Pakistan, Cambodia, and Slovakia. With entrepreneurship at the heart of Sofi Tucker’s extraordinary story—and SheaMoisture her legacy, the scholarship continues that entrepreneurial spirit through empowering the next generation of women to drive change in themselves and their communities.
Each student will have the chance to develop her skills as a self-motivated entrepreneur, immersed in Babson’s Entrepreneurial Thought & Action® methodology—a mindset that balances action, experimentation, and creativity with a deep understanding of business fundamentals and rigorous analysis as the ideal approach to creating economic and social value.
Babson’s Summer Study is a residential program for rising high school juniors and seniors, who will work to conceptualize a new venture that creates meaningful social or economic value.
The four-week, on-campus course is an immersive opportunity that gives them real-world experience while building their business knowledge and entrepreneurial skills. Students will be introduced to Entrepreneurial Thought & Action (ET&A™)—Babson’s renowned methodology that encourages combining reflection, experimentation, and analysis with action—all while building leadership, communication, presentation and critical thinking skills in a hands-on, team-based environment.
