Students in Free
Enterprise, or SIFE, is a global non-profit
organization active in more than 40 countries.
Working in partnership with business and higher
education, SIFE encourage
student teams to develop community outreach projects
that reach SIFE's five educational topics:
As a member of a
SIFE team individual
members leverage their personal educational experiences, the
expertise of their faculty advisors, the support of their
local business advisory boards, and the resources of their
institutions to implement programs that create real economic
opportunities for members of their communities. The
effectiveness of their programs is judged at competition.
Each national SIFE organization conducts a national
competition, which is judged by leaders from its business
community. At competition, SIFE teams present the results of
their educational outreach projects and compete to determine
which team was most successful at creating economic
opportunity for others. SIFE National Champion teams advance
to the top level of competition, the SIFE World Cup.
