Meet our Young Innovators  

Young Innovators Fellowship Program

There’s a group of West Virginia University students who want to bring innovation and entrepreneurship to their communities, creating new opportunities in farming, food, and fashion. They’re the first cohort to be selected for the WVU Davis College Young Innovators Fellowship Program.

What is a Young Innovator Fellow?

We go above, and beyond to learn how to think, act and create differently. We are the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs and problem solvers. We are the futures economic engines that will rev the economy of West Virginia, the nation and the world.

Our Young Innovators have the opportunity to learn outside the classroom, at team building workshops, national conferences, in labs created for the kinds of outside the box thinkers they are and with mentors who were once young innovators themselves. Check out our Young Innovators’ experiences and how they see this program helping them.
