Supporting tomorrow's young entrepreneurs
As we reflect on our first decade in operation, we appreciate the trials, challenges and rewards we experienced to build our business from the ground up.
In recognition of that process and to encourage the next generation of curious, persistent and passionate entrepreneurs, we are proud to introduce our Tortoise Young Entrepreneurs Scholarship Program.
The program is designed to give deserving students a leg up in their academic endeavors. In turn, we hope their educational experience will help them mold an entrepreneurial mindset that helps them conceive or support firms that create innovative products, processes and solutions.
We will award three, non-renewable scholarships annually.
To be eligible, applicants must:
- Be a permanent resident of Kansas or Missouri who is enrolled or plans to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study towards a bachelor's degree, or;
- Are a non-resident of either state who is enrolled or plans to enroll as a full-time student in a four-year bachelor's program at a Kansas or Missouri accredited university or college, and;
- Have a minimum 3.3 grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale or equivalent) and a minimum ACT score of 24 or minimum SAT score of 1680.
Applicants will be judged on demonstrated entrepreneurial success/accomplishments, academic record, extracurricular activity and anticipated future potential.
Our application is quick and easy. The application is hosted on ScholarshipsExperts.com, a leading scholarship search organization recognized by Forbes.com "Best of Web" review.
