Deadline for Supporting 2014 YEF Scholarships is March 31

Date: March 07, 2014

The NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation has received 571 applications for 2014 Young Entrepreneur Awards.

The number of students who will receive scholarships depends on you.

Since 2003, YEF has awarded over 2,500 scholarships worth almost $3 million to graduating high school seniors. 

The YEF is asking NFIB members like you to contribute any amount to support the 2014 Young Entrepreneur Awards. The Young Entrepreneur Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization, so your donation will be tax deductible.

Basic scholarships are $1,000. If your donation fully funds one scholarship, you’ll have the opportunity to determine the name of the scholarship and specific criteria for the scholarship winner.

Because entrepreneurship needs to be encouraged across the country, NFIB’s YEF’s goal is to raise enough money to fund at least one scholarship in each state. State Leadership Councils are working hard to raise money to fund their state’s NFIB Young Entrepreneur Award.

To donate online, visit: by March 31, 2014, or contact Member Support Manager Sarah Waters at or 615-872-5331.
