CFE Dr. Sid Gautam Scholarship for Entrepreneurs

In the fall of 2013, the Center for Entrepreneurship (CFE) announced a new endowed scholarship for students majoring in entrepreneurship. According to CFE Director Marty Cayton, "The scholarship also honors CFE founder Dr. Sid Gautam, whose ideas, business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit, and more than 40 years of engaged service to the Cape Fear region and Methodist University enabled local entrepreneurs and business people to prosper, alumni to succeed, and small businesses in the Fayetteville community to flourish."

The seed funding for the scholarship was made possible by the late Mr. Robert R. Dunn '70 of Charlotte, formerly the president and co-founder of The Finley Group, a successful crisis management firm in Charlotte.

The first recipient of the scholarship is Mr. Justin Morgan (right) from Washingtonville, NY. Justin recently graduated from Washingtonville High School, serving as the school's soccer captain. He's interested in playing men's soccer at MU and plans to major in Entrepreneurship.

In order to be considered for the scholarship, students must:

  • major in Entrepreneurship,
  • qualify academically for the University's Presidential Scholars Program,
  • demonstrate leadership qualities, commitment to innovation and/or business ownership and good citizenship.

The scholarship amount of $3,000 per year is in addition to the Methodist University Presidential Scholarship:
