We are proud to announce that our 4th annual scholarship program is now open! The SuretyBonds.com Small Business Scholarship Program is open to students who will be enrolled in college classes full-time for Fall 2016. Applicants must have experience in small business, whether personally or from observing family members working to make a way for themselves. $1,500 scholarships will be awarded to three deserving college students whose lives have been shaped by small business.
How does it work?
Applications are open to students in every state. Each student must submit a 500 to 1,000-word essay about how small business has influenced them and their career paths. All entries must be received no later than March 31, 2016 to be eligible for the contest. Applications will only be accepted via email submission to [email protected] along with the required criteria listed in the Official Rules. From the submitted essays, ten finalists will be chosen by the SuretyBonds.com Scholarship Committee, and voters will decide the three scholarship winners. Voting will be open from May 1 to May 31, and the winner will be notified and announced on our blog and Facebook page on June 3.
Why small business?
SuretyBonds.com has been serving small businesses since 2009 working alongside entrepreneurs and business owners helping them launch new ventures or grow existing ones. Without their hard work and successes, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Thanks to that inspiring group of leaders, SuretyBonds.com has grown year after year and it’s a priority of ours to take any opportunity to give back to the small business community. Part of our way of doing this is through our annual scholarship program.
