Bud and Bing Mortenson
The net income only shall be used to support internships for students enrolled in the College of Business at the University of Wyoming. Upper-division business students or graduate students pursuing an MBA or an M.S. degree in accounting or finance, or other related graduate degrees, will be eligible for the Bud and Bing Mortenson Entrepreneurship Internships to work directly on entrepreneurship activities. Preference shall be given to students who are Wyoming born and who plan to intern within the Wyoming Technology Business Center (also known as the “incubator”) to practice their skills while assisting incubator clients on topics such as, but not limited to, business plan development, financing, and marketing research. Should there be no Wyoming-born applicants in a given year, other UW business students may qualify for the internships. Should there be no internship opportunities available with incubator clients, students selected for the Bud and Bing Mortenson Internships may work directly with other small businesses or start-up companies in Wyoming. The internship funds will be available to supplement student stipends during the internship, to pay UW tuition and fees during the internship, or to provide living and travel expenses associated with the internship experience.
Recipients of the internship awards shall be selected by the Director of the College of Business internship Program, in consultation with the college’s faculty.
