Business Plan Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

Have you written a business plan for a competition, class, or to further your own entrepreneurial ventures? If so, we invite you to apply for the Business Plan Scholarship From Fit Small Business. We are interested in finding out what you learned from writing a business plan. Instead of providing us with a business plan, to apply for the scholarship submit a 500 to 1,000 word essay on "What I learned from writing a business plan".

Who is eligible:

Any student enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program at any accredited American College, University or Trade School with a documented disability may apply for the scholarship. The scholarship is open to students with any type of disability, including but not limited to physical disabilities, medical conditions, mental and psychiatric conditions, speech and language, learning disabilities, behavioral conditions, and all other disabling conditions.

Potential essay topics include:

What I learned about researching ______ for the business plan.

What I learned about the _____ industry during researching the business plan.

What I learned about the key assumptions that my plan depended upon.

Why I no longer thought the business was viable after writing the plan.

How and why the business plan changed during the process of getting feedback!

Essays will be judged by David Waring and Marc Prosser, the co-founders of Fit Small Business, based on the originality, writing style, and quality of ideas. The best overall submission will be awarded a $1,000 cash scholarship. For terms and conditions of the scholarship see below.
