One of the hottest proposals for a new -- and possibly better -- way to pay for college got one of its most important tests one snowy day this winter in a Clarkson University classroom.
Clarkson offered the contestants something pretty revolutionary in return. The students with the best business ideas would win full-tuition scholarships to the school -- a prize worth more than $37,000 a year. The only catch: The winners have to give Clarkson a 10% stake in their business.
