The eStep Foundation

The eStep Foundation was formed to give local, college bound students assistance with the cost of tuition. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that awards scholarships to deserving high school seniors while providing a stimulus to thinking “outside of the box” when making decisions to work for a company, or even starting one.  Our hopes are that this fund will sow the seeds of entrepreneurship in the young minds of tomorrow's Bill Gates or Ted Turners.

We Heart South Forsyth High School defines an entrepreneur as:
A person who organizes, operates, and assumes the risk for a business venture.

In the late 90’s, America's business landscape was alive with dot com's and e-businesses springing up left and right.  Thinking “outside of the box” was the standard of our time.  Due to current market forces we no longer hear of the exploits of these business mavericks striking out on their own.  The thinking has shifted dramatically back to business as usual with college graduates dreaming of jobs with today’s Fortune 500 companies.

To enter, you must submit a scholarship registration form (available in your guidance counselor’s office) along with your business plan.  Your business plan should include as much detail as possible, including all aspects of designing and implementing a business from the original idea to the operating process and marketing information.

**This is not a national program.** This is a local scholarship. Only students in the Alpharetta, Roswell, and South Forsyth high schools are eligible.   

Guidelines for eligibility are as follows:
