This is a full-time, all-in program. From years of testing we have learned that the dedicated nature of the program is critical to its success. We do not allow other courses to be taken with overlapping dates or any job that would interfere with the program commitment.
Open to full-time Lehigh University students AND on a case-by-case basis, those students graduating in May before the program starts. In addition, students (1) must be in good academic standing, (2) may not be on disciplinary probation at the time of application, (3) must have their Bursar accounts paid in full, (4) must not be applying with an idea that they are already operating as a business (i.e. cannot be a formed legal entity, be selling product, or raising funds), and (5) may not be planning to take courses that overlap with the program dates.
Accepted students will be awarded a stipend to allow for full-time participation in the program.
There is no academic credit offered for participation in LaunchBayC.
LaunchBayC does not provide or coordinate summer housing. You may search off-campus or work with Lehigh's residential services for on-campus options.
