The Young Entrepreneur Awards program was designed to identify and reward students who have demonstrated entrepreneurial spirit and initiative by running their own entrepreneurial venture. Since 2003, YEF has awarded over 2,500 scholarships worth more than $2.5 million to graduating high school seniors. We award students who have demonstrated entrepreneurial talent by owning and/or operating their own business. Young Entrepreneur Awards range from $2,000 to $25,000 and enable students to further their studies in a two-year or four-year institution of higher learning while encouraging them to consider joining the ranks of America's independent business owners.
