My grandmother, Mary Jo Huey, was a dreamer.

An inspiring rebel and free thinker, my grandmother ran away from home at 16 years old. The odds were stacked heavily against her, but she dreamed of a life of abundance for herself and her family, so she worked relentlessly. She started working with farm products to earn income, and she eventually began flipping houses.

In honor of her hard-working personality and entrepreneurial spirit, the Mary Jo Huey Entrepreneurial Spirit Scholarship exists and will support a young entrepreneur who also embodies these essential qualities and displays them every day. 

To be eligible for this scholarship you must be a first-generation and/or low-income student at any education level in any field of study. To apply, please write about your experience as an aspiring entrepreneur, the lessons you’ve learned thus far through your journey, and what motivates you to succeed.
