How to Apply

Review Process

Prospective or current programs may apply for residence in the incubator after approval of a new program concept paper, (see Guidelines for Developing a Concept Paper). Program Incubator applications will be reviewed by the Program Incubator Advisory Board.

The Program Incubator Advisory Board will review applications to the incubator and make recommendations to the Provost based on program’s:

  • Likely viability, given the market conditions described.
  • Prospective revenue projections.
  • Consistency with Marquette’s mission as described in the strategic plan.

The Provost will select a limited number of programs for residence in the incubator.

Preference will be given to interdisciplinary master’s and professional programs that can benefit from start-up funding, and have high-enrollment potential.
