2015 Young Entrepreneur Award Nominator Form
The application process for the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards is well underway. 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 2,300 scholarships worth more than $2.5 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 before they can advance in the award system. 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. As a 2015 NFIB Young Entrepreneur Award Nominator, you help identify a qualified pool of applicants who will potentially receive this prestigious award. Most importantly, your involvement helps educate these students on the importance of small business and free enterprise. Your participation is greatly needed and appreciated!
