Launch: Campus to Career is a series of free events that are open to all college students (local, undergraduate, and graduate students) that occur year-round. No application is required to attend Launch events and no events are required. Accelerate is a free semester program that requires application – it is a cumulative experience for high-performing students with each session required.
All participants must submit an application. To qualify, students must be current full-time, 4-year college students with an expected graduation date by May 2026. They must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher and provide two recommendations from campus leaders who can speak to leadership and professional potential. We encourage you to apply to the program if you are interested and encourage community partners to nominate potential talent.
Applications for the Spring 2023 cohort are due by January 23, 2023 and are reviewed on a rolling basis. Nominations for Accelerate candidates are accepted at any time, though application deadlines for future cohorts will be set closer to the start of those sessions.
While the actual value is $1,800 per participant, our community and corporate partners enable us to offer the program for free to all participants. Additionally, New Memphis will give a $350 stipend to each participant who completes the program for having invested in their own professional development.
