The field of business is booming, becoming the most common field of study for college students due to the many opportunities it offers.

Between 2009 and 2019, the number of bachelor’s degrees awarded in business each year increased by 9%. Now, over 390,000 students graduate with bachelor’s degrees every year, leading to a large pool of entrepreneurs entering the field each year.

This scholarship seeks to support first-generation undergraduate students in the second year of their program to reduce their college costs.  

Any a traditional-age first-generation student entering your second year of college studying business may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, please discuss your experiences as a first-generation student and how you plan to manage the challenges of becoming a sophomore when research tells us that the second year of college is when students experience the sophomore slump and fail to persist in their education. Also, discuss what does a college education mean to you?
