The purpose of the foundation is to award scholarships to college-bound high school seniors based on demonstrated academic achievement, financial need, and an express interest in entrepreneurship and/or business.
The students eligible for assistance must be Bronx residents and must be graduating high school seniors who have been accepted into an accredited four-year college or university with a 3.0 or higher grade-point average.
Consideration will be given to academic achievement, financial need, the student’s community service record, and recommendations from teachers, guidance counselors, and/or principles.
Students should submit a transcript and a one page essay explaining “Why Entrepreneurship is Important to You.”
Scholarships will be awarded on an annual basis. The scholarship will be disbursed to the student’s college/university’s bursar office in August. Students must continue to attend classes and maintain no lower than a 3.0 grade-point average (or equivalent).
Each scholarship awarded will be $3,000 annually (not to exceed $12,000 over four consecutive years).
The application deadline is April 1, 2019. The deadline is the date after which applications will no longer be accepted.
Recipients will be selected by an independent committee based on application materials provided.
Please submit applications by April 1st to: Apply@BronxESFC.com
