Business Scholarships for High School Students – 2022

    Posted May 31, 2022, 5:00 pm by TeenLife

    While it's certainly possible to start your own company and become an industry leader without ever stepping foot in a college, it’s still a risky option. Success stories like Mark Zuckerberg or Elon Musk are often the exception and not the rule, and a college degree is still highly recommended for students who are looking to pursue a future in business, finance, entrepreneurship and more. The business scholarships listed on this page can help.

    We know that the cost of higher education is only growing, so business scholarships like these can be indispensable for many students.

    Many of the scholarships listed here have deadlines that are rapidly approaching, and others may have certain prerequisites for application. For these reasons, students should read the terms of each business scholarship closely before applying. If the application deadline has already passed, we recommend bookmarking this page, as many of the business scholarships listed here are annual awards that other students can return to next year.

    Additionally, if you’ve already applied to a college or university, be sure to check whether or not they have any business-specific scholarships. Many universities have business colleges that offer their own opportunities and specialized aid, so be sure to ask the colleges you’re interested in if they have any such programs or scholarships available.

    Take a look and start applying today! Scholarships with the earliest deadlines are listed first.
