A competitive academic program, the Sheetz Fellows Program offers unique opportunities that ignite and inspire the entrepreneurial mindset of students at Penn State Altoona by fostering critical thinking, ingenuity, leadership, and problem-solving skills.
Eighteen Sheetz Fellows from Penn State Altoona attended the three-day 2018 National Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization Conference in Kansas City, Missouri, Nov. 1-3. The conference brought more than 600 students, faculty and young entrepreneurs together to network, learn and be inspired to pursue their entrepreneurial passions.
Using the skills he learned as part of the Sheetz Fellows program, EMET grad Steve Mullen landed a job with Lockheed Martin helping to develop the world’s first maritime ballistic missile defense system.
What began as an activity for the Security and Risk Analysis club, has grown to include entrepreneurs from the Sheetz Fellows Program. The two groups of students teamed up with the national security firm GRIMM for something called Hax.
