UPDATE: The scholarship deadline has been extended to Jan. 1, 2015.
A Wellesley resident and nominator for the National Federation of Independent Business’s Young Entrepreneur Foundation scholarship program has given us a heads up that the deadline for high school seniors to apply for the 2015 scholarship is Dec. 18.
The scholarships are for students who have started and operate their own business. It is aimed at students who plan to attend an accredited college or vocational school and who intend to pursue a career in business or entrepreneurship.
In Massachusetts, generally two to three of these scholarships are awarded each year. The base award is $1,000, with a top national award of $15,000. In 2014, a total of $145,000 was awarded to graduating seniors.
