Entrepreneurship can change the world, but it’s not easy.
From choosing an idea to scaling a business, there are countless challenges on the entrepreneurial journey. Sleepless nights, daunting challenges, and failure are all a part of the day-to-day life of an entrepreneur.
The WiseGeek Entrepreneurship Matters Scholarship exists to make the entrepreneurial journey more accessible. The scholarship will support an ambitious and bold entrepreneur who wants to build a business that makes the world a better place.
While not required, we will look for candidates with a track record of overcoming challenges and a penchant for continuous growth.
The application deadline is May 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on May 21, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 21, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
