I4E announces Scholarship opportunities for Nassau Co. FL. Entrepreneur Class seniors.
For the seventh year in a row, the Institute for Enterprise, Inc. will be offering multiple scholarships to Nassau County High School seniors enrolled in a Principles of Entrepreneurship class at their high school. Each scholarship will be a onetime award of $1000 toward the financial cost of any fully accredited college, university, learning institution, or approved vocational/technical school where the student is pursuing an entrepreneurial degree or certificate. Payment will be made directly to the school upon proof of enrollment.
Students will be required to submit a 2-3 paragraph paper on why they want to pursue becoming an entrepreneur and what their post-secondary educational goals are. The essay must be submitted to their Guidance Counselor at a date to be determined in the Spring.
Applicants must be self-starters, exhibit initiative, and want to become entrepreneurs. Selection will be made without regard to race, sex, religion, or national origin by the I4E scholarship committee.
