Rising Innovator Scholarship

Organization & Scholarship Overview:
Rising Innovator, a site that provides resources for young entrepreneurs and their mentors, is eager to give back to the community. We are offering an annual scholarship award to students across the United States! The Rising Innovator scholarship will be open to any student who is enrolled in a college or university as a full-time student and valued at $500! Our goal with this scholarship is to help a student with entrepreneurial aspirations. Any student interested in receiving the scholarship for 2022 tuition can enter by submitting a 1,000-word essay on the topic of “What does being an entrepreneur mean to you?” The winning essay will be published on Rising Innovator along with the student’s name and photo. As long as the essay remains on the topic, the style of the essay is open-ended: it can be an informative essay, a creative story, a narrative – any sort of written piece. Essays will be judged on originality, creativity, content, writing sophistication, and relevance to the essay topic. The content must be original and sources must be cited.
