At Viking, we believe in fostering and encouraging the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. This is why we created our Entrepreneur Endorsement Scholarship, which is designed to help offset the costs of education for college students who have shown a demonstrated interest in entrepreneurship. Learn more about this scholarship below.
