Experiential Programs for KL2 Scholars

The following experiential programs are available for KL2 Scholars. 

Technology Transfer Fellowships
The Office of Technology Development, located at the College of Medicine on the Hershey Campus, offers a technology transfer fellowship program for Penn State Scholars with an interest in entrepreneurial, commercialization and business development within the biotechnology and healthcare industry. An intensive one-week training session (boot camp) starts off the program by providing the basics of intellectual property protection and licensing strategies. Fellows are exposed to cutting-edge science, including intellectual property evaluations, marketing and commercialization efforts, business strategy development and innovation strategies. Various meetings and networking events provide fellows with invaluable professional career opportunities through exposure to business and community leaders, venture capitalists and angel investors. The program can be tailored to allow short-term participation in the boot camp or an intensive program involving real world exposure. The program is open to Scholars at any campus.
