PATRICK HORSMAN FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP
Fueling the next generation of American entrepreneurs
The purpose of the Patrick Horsman Foundation Scholarship is to support talented, promising undergraduates who are serious about becoming entrepreneurs. Patrick Horsman is a successful entrepreneur. He’s founded several companies over the course of his career, and he credits a solid undergraduate education as an important part of his training.
The goal of the scholarship is to help students defray the high cost of tuition, room & board, and supplies, so that they can focus on scholastic achievement. Financial resources shouldn’t be an obstacle standing in the way of an education, and Patrick is committed to helping promising students pay for their education.
Candidates need to be enrolled full-time in a four-year university or college in the United States. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents.
Grades are evaluated, but there is no minimum grade point average required for applicants. The most important component of the application for the scholarship is the personal essay. Applicants must write a 1-2 page essay about why they want to become an entrepreneur.
The essay should answer the following four questions:
Why do you want to become an entrepreneur?
Why do you believe you will be successful?
What is your edge?
And finally...what is your business idea?
