Brown Scholars


The Brown Scholars are a select group of four to six Coastal Carolina University students who educate and mentor the students in the Each 1 Teach 1 Entrepreneurship Institute. The scholars are trained by the director of the Each 1 Teach 1, the director of the Biddle Center for Teaching, Learning and Community Engagement, and local entrepreneurs. The scholars deliver workshops on life skills and entrepreneurial skills during the summer programs and mentor the students in the program throughout the school year. Scholars are community leaders, enthusiastic educators and caring role models. If you wish to become a Brown Scholar, contact Yoav Wachsman at yoav@coastal.edu
