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 Apr 16, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 16, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 16, 2022. 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
