Park City students earn Lassonde honors

Park City students were among the over 140 student entrepreneurs who received over $1.5 million in scholarship or tuition waivers from the the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, a top-10 ranked program at the University of Utah and the David Eccles School of Business for the 2023-24 academic year.

Most of the scholarships come with the opportunity to gain leadership skills and experience while managing many activities for aspiring entrepreneurs.

The local students included:

  • Tom Glasmann, of Park City
  • Andrew Sweeney, of Park City
  • Carter Dean, of Oakley
  • Derek Martin, of Park City

“We are proudly powered by students who receive scholarships to be leaders in our community,” said Troy D’Ambrosio, executive director of the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute and an assistant dean at the Eccles School. “These students are getting a great experience managing our many programs and opportunities while also receiving support for their educations.”

All incoming and current students at the University of Utah are welcome to apply for scholarships from the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. The priority application deadline to apply for scholarships for the 2024-25 academic year is Jan. 9, 2024. Students who miss the priority deadline can apply at any time, and applications will be considered when opportunities are available.

The majority of the students receiving scholarships serve as student leaders. They manage a broad variety of programs at the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute, ranging from workshops and mentor sessions to a makerspace and high school outreach program.

“Our students do everything from showing students how to use our 3-D printers to awarding grants to fellow student entrepreneurs,” said Anne Bastien, program director at the Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute. “They are receiving meaningful experiences that will help them prepare for the future.
