Miller Fellowship

 In 2014, Dr. Tom Miller created the Entrepreneurship Initiative Fellows program to support newly graduated NC State students who wished to pursue their venture full-time after graduation. The program was endowed by a group of alumni and renamed the  Dr. Thomas Kenan Miller III Fellows Program in fall 2017.

Rent and Raman Noodles

The fellowship provides a monthly stipend of $500 for a six-month period. The stipend is intended to provide entrepreneurs with enough resources for “rent and Raman noodles” to bridge the gap between graduation and starting a company. In addition to the financial resources, fellows benefit from continued use of university resources (NCSU Libraries, Entrepreneurship Garage) and mentorship from entrepreneurship staff.

Past fellows include Undercover Colors, Nicotrax, Bee Downtown, Trakex, Kast Clothing and Rhythcor.

Applications for the next class of Miller Fellows will be available in Spring 2018.
