Young Entrepreneur Award Nominator Form

Young Entrepreneur Foundation

Part of the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation mission is awarding scholarships recognizing the entrepreneurial spirit of graduating high school seniors across the country. Since 2003, YEF has awarded over 2,800 scholarships worth more than $2.8 million to graduating high school seniors. These awards help students further their education in pursuit of their entrepreneurial dreams.

Students selected as semi-finalists must be nominated by an active NFIB member or NFIB staff before they can advance in the award system. As a NFIB Young Entrepreneur Award Default Nominator, you identify a qualified pool of applicants who will potentially receive this prestigious award. Each nomination can take as little as 20 minutes of your time, as each involves only a 20 minute phone conversation with the student. YEF will match you with the applicants who you will nominate and will email you information with instructions enabling you to move through this process easily. Your participation is both needed and appreciated!
