Young Entrepreneur and Scholar Program (YES)

Young Entrepreneur and Scholar Program (YES)

The YES program prepares academically talented students to enter the workforce or pursue an advanced degree.

As a YES participant, you can get an internship and mentorship, attend the YES Distinguished Lecture Series and participate in the YES Annual Symposium to showcase your internship experiences.

You’ll also get to participate in workshops and presentations and be part of the YES learning community, which connects you with faculty, industry representatives and UCF staff.

YES is open to students who have completed their associate’s degree in a STEM field — science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Every year YES supports 15 new students, each for two years. Students must meet the following eligibility requirements each semester to participate, and participation is contingent on placement with an industry mentor.
