Project CLEAR (Creating Leadership Entrepreneurship Action and Response) is a grant-funded project in collaboration with the Missouri Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development to stimulate entrepreneurial thinking and leadership aimed at the economic viability of the most under-resourced and socially vulnerable counties across Missouri. The project provides students from these counties with scholarships to attend William Woods University, participate in entrepreneurial and leadership workshops, work closely with the local governments and community organizations from their home counties, and produce real-world initiatives, innovations, and industries that align with economic stimulus and sustainability for the counties across Missouri that need it most.
