SIFE is a nonprofit organization that
gives students the tools to learn the free enterprise system in a real working
situation. SIFE challenges students on more than 800 college campuses nationwide
to take what they're learning in the classroom and use their knowledge to better
Guided by faculty advisors who are named Sam M. Walton Free Enterprise Fellows in honor of the late Wal-Mart founder, SIFE Teams establish a variety of community outreach programs that teach free enterprise. For example, they teach concepts such as budgeting, accounting and supply and demand. They help budding entrepreneurs get their plans off the ground and mentor at-risk students, inspiring them to reach for their dreams.
