Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE)

Students in Free Enterprise is the world's largest collegiate free enterprise organization.  SIFE provides leadership training, regional competitions and career opportunity fairs for thousands of college students throughout thirty-one countries.  Students have the opportunity to go to regional, national and international competitions, where they share what they have done and help spread free enterprise in their community.

The Griggs Center for Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy provides annual grant funds to select SIFE teams whose projects focus on social or non-profit entrepreneurship.
