About The Future Entrepreneurs of America Scholarship:
Table Legs Online understands the high costs of pursuing higher education. Even with an early start, saving and budgeting for college can be difficult in this ever-changing economy. It's hard to predict costs, so they believe every bit of help matters. So with this in mind, the company presented The Future Entrepreneurs of America Scholarship in August of 2015. This scholarship awards innovative, forward-thinking students with a passion for business and entrepreneurship. To qualify, students are asked to write an essay answering three questions: In your opinion, what is it that makes someone an entrepreneur? In your opinion, what major characteristics do successful entrepreneurs exhibit, and why these characteristics? Describe your entrepreneurial experiences and why you would make a great future entrepreneur or business leader. Each year there will be two winners (one in the spring and one in the fall) that will be awarded $500 for books, living expenses, and other required fees.
