Maria Vasco '20, an environmental studies and sustainability major in the School for the Environment and UMass Boston Honors College who is passionate about changing plastic packaging in the beauty industry, is the first-ever recipient of UMass Boston's inaugural Entrepreneur Scholarship. In addition to receiving $5,000, she is being mentored by the scholarship’s founder, Dan Phillips, for the next two years.

The Entrepreneur Scholarship is open to juniors and seniors with a minimum of a 2.75 GPA who have a desire to work for a venture capital backed startup, and potentially start their own company someday.
