Campus KEEN Rising Stars

Campus KEEN Rising Stars are junior faculty who are driven by an entrepreneurial mindset to create long-lasting value. 


Any faculty member from a KEEN Partner school and with less than 10 years of experience as a faculty member can nominate themselves for consideration as a Campus KEEN Rising Star.

All applications from a campus are reviewed by that campus's KEEN Leaders. The KEEN Leaders may select one (1) applicant to be their Campus KEEN Rising Star.

A Campus KEEN Rising Star receives an award and a certificate recognizing their efforts to equip undergraduate engineers to create personal, economic, and societal value through the entrepreneurial mindset. Campus KEEN Rising Stars may also be nominated for consideration as a National KEEN Rising Star. See application instructions on the National KEEN Rising Star page.
