The Forbes School of Business & Technology at Ashford University is proud to offer $5,000 scholarships to students who exemplify the entrepreneurial spirit. Ashford University is committed to supporting the creation of new ideas that increase economic activity and advance society through business solutions. A committee composed of Forbes School of Business & Technology faculty members will evaluate each submission and determine the winners. The scholarship award will be applied to future tuition charges in the student’s Forbes School of Business & Technology degree program.
While you might assume that you have to be enrolled in an online entrepreneurship degree to qualify, the Entrepreneurship Scholarship opportunity is open to prospective students, students currently enrolled in an Ashford University degree program, returning students, and alumni of Ashford University degree programs.
The committee will select recipients based on the most compelling application, the applicant’s current business and/or new business idea, and its potential impact on the economy.
Please see the table below for application deadlines.
Please note that in order to be eligible, a current business plan and/or new business idea must be submitted along with the form. Applicants may re-submit their business plan for each scholarship award period.
