The Governor's School for Entrepreneurs (GSE)


The Governor's School for Entrepreneurs (GSE) will begin accepting applications for Summer 2023 on (TBA). GSE brings teens together from around the state of Kentucky, immerses them in a creative space, and arms them with the tools they need to unleash their entrepreneurial spirits. While all participants gain vital entrepreneurial skills through the program to use as they enter the workplace or continue into higher education, 11 new businesses have already been launched by young entrepreneurs. Others have filed for multiple patents and developed new ideas and relationships that sow the seeds for more business formation. In addition, as a direct result of their participation In GSE, participants qualify for some $3 million in scholarship opportunities from Kentucky's universities and colleges.
