The Harvard Business Services business scholarship program was created to help ambitious students chase their dreams by providing a $1,000 award. In 2021, we will award two $1,000 scholarships for business majors and entrepreneurs - one to a student with a for-profit business concept and the other to a non-profit concept.
To qualify for our entrepreneur scholarships, students must meet the following criteria:
A) Be actively enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate business or entrepreneurship program at an accredited U.S. college or university as of September 1, 2021.
B) Be 18 years or older by September 1, 2021.
C) Tell us about your planned or existing business. Please include a description of the business (including whether it is a for-profit or non-profit concept), the inspiration behind it, why you believe it will succeed and/or continue to grow, and how your college education is directly contributing to your ability to succeed.
You may provide this information in either of two ways:
1) Write a brief essay (500 - 1,000 words). The essay can be written directly in the application window or uploaded as a Microsoft Word or PDF file.
2) Record a video of yourself describing your business. Please follow these guidelines if you choose this option:
a) Your video should not exceed three minutes.
b) Your video must be uploaded to YouTube. In the application, you will share the URL for the video (remember to make it public or viewable by direct link).
c) Please include "Harvard Business Services Scholarship Entry" in the title of the video.
