The National Federation of Independent Business Young Entrepreneur Foundation announced that its scholarship application for the 2016 NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards is now available.
High school seniors who run their own business and plan to attend a two- or four-year university, college or vocational institute during fall 2016 are eligible to apply.
The NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation offers scholarships that recognize high school seniors who have demonstrated entrepreneurial spirit and initiative through having established and run their own businesses.
Ninety five of the scholarship winners will receive a $2,000 award, and five students will be chosen as Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award finalists. The finalists will qualify for NFIB’s two top scholarship awards and attend a ceremony in Washington, D.C., where the winners will be named. The Young Entrepreneur of the Year recipient will receive $25,000, the Dan Danner Leadership Award winner will receive $15,000, and the remaining three finalists will each receive $10,000.
