Entrepreneurial Scholarships

Entrepreneurial scholarships are awarded to students who submit the best business plans based on businesses they are interested in starting. 

To enter, you must submit a scholarship application with your business plan attached.  A business plan is the process of gathering your ideas and developing and growing your business scheme.  Your business plan can be as simple or as in depth as you see fit, detailing all aspects of designing and implementing a business from the original idea to the operating process and marketing information.

This is a local scholarship. Only students in the Alpharetta, Roswell, and South Forsyth high schools are eligible.
