The Grasshopper Entrepreneur Scholarship aims to help entrepreneurial students pay for the rising costs of education, and supports them along the path to starting a business. Through this program, Grasshopper will award one high school senior or college student a $5,000 scholarship made payable to the university they are or will be attending in 2019.

If you meet the below criteria, please apply via the application page. If you are associated with a high school or university, please spread the word to your students.

  • Must be enrolled at an accredited American college, university or trade school.
