The NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards program was established to raise awareness among the nation's youth of the critical role that private enterprise and entrepreneurship play in the building of America. Since 2003, the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation has awarded over 2,400 scholarships to graduating high school seniors totaling more than $2.5 million.
Once you have started your application for the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards, please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your email contact list, as this is how you will receive information about your application, your applicant status, and your designation as an Award winner.
NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards are open to any graduating high school senior entering their freshman year at an accredited (not for profit) two- or four-year university, college or vocational/technical institute. Applicants MUST be running their own small business in order to be considered for an award.

Consider volunteering to interview students who have applied for the scholarship to help determine which students are most worthy of the Young Entrepreneur Awards. Each applicant involves no more than a 20 minute phone conversation. Please fill out the Nominator form if you are willing to help interview and choose our 2014 Young Entrepreneur Award winners.
Sponsor one of the Young Entrepreneur Award scholarships. Each $1,000 donation will provide a scholarship for one young entrepreneur specifically in the state of your choosing. A Young Entrepreneur Award is not a direct investment in a student’s business. Rather, it provides financial assistance for a student to attend post-secondary schooling, to continue their entrepreneurial education. Fill out the Donation form with your tax deductible contribution and see the list of benefits to you and your business for your generous donation.
Please contact the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation at email@example.com with any further questions.
