May 16, 2011 - Michael Green, the founder of The Michael Green Entrepreneurial Scholarship, is reintroducing the scholarship through the Kid Entrepreneurs Need Opportunities Micro-Fund (KENO Micro-Fund). The scholarship, still exclusive to three students in the Atlanta University Center (AUC), will provide $1,000 to dedicated entrepreneurial students to use for school purposes (i.e. tuition, books, fees) or towards the development of an entrepreneurial endeavor such as starting or maintaining a business. 

As a 2006 honors graduate of Morehouse College, Michael Green has pioneered his way as a young successful entrepreneur enlightening minds of all ages with his wisdom and passion for entrepreneurship.

“Entrepreneurship is the lifeblood of ownership, ownership is the backbone of power, and power is the dollar that makes change,” said Green about the fundamentals of an impresario lifestyle. “All of our candidates will demonstrate great potential in leading the next generation and shaping its views on the importance of entrepreneurship.”

“We are excited to partner with Michael on The Michael Green Entrepreneurial Scholarship,” said Adrienne Lance Lucas President and Co-Founder of The KENO Micro-Fund, “Michael’s dedication to not only growing a successful business, but using his resources to help other young people do the same is the mark of true leadership. The partnership announcement comes at a perfect time as we celebrate Youth Entrepreneurship Week.”

The scholarships are created largely through grass-roots fundraising within the KENO Micro-Fund. Candidates must be a registered student at Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, or Spelman College; any classification may apply. The requirements for the application process include:

  • A professional résumé
  • An unofficial transcript from either Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College or Spelman College (There will be one winning submission from each school)
  • A 500-word essay on the importance of entrepreneurship and giving back as it pertains to the empowerment of the African American community
  • A conceptual model of a business you are seeking to establish, or an endeavor you are planning to pursue
