$500 Business Scholarship Contest For Students
Posted By: Dante Lee on July 09, 2009 |
The National Institute of Small Business Grants (NISBG) is a virtual organization that compiles and publishes information and resources pertaining to business grants. In August, they are giving away $500 to a student who is majoring in any field of business - including marketing, advertising, public relations, accounting, communications, human resources, etc.
To be eligible for the scholarship award, applicants must live in the United States, and attend or plan to attend a school in the United States. The institution attended can be any trade school, college, or university. In addition, the applicant must submit a 500 word essay addressing the following topic: "What are business grants and why are they important for America's small businesses?" The deadline to apply is August 31, 2009 and a winner will be selected by September 30, 2009.
The scholarship is designed to help a motivated business student by partially reimbursing them for tuition and books. NISBG also seeks to encourage more students to pursue business-related careers, and to encourage entrepreneurship amongst students at the high school and college levels.
