Minority Entrepreneurs Scholarship Program –

The International Franchise Association (IFA) Educational Foundation and Marriott International are sponsoring the Minority Entrepreneurs Scholarship Program, designed to help and recognize minority students by providing scholarship funds to those studying business, franchising, and/or entrepreneurial studies.

The scholarship program awards five $3,000 scholarships each year. Eligible students should be enrolled in an accredited college or university and adult entrepreneurs should be enrolled in professional development courses related to franchising – such as those recognized by the Institute of Certified Franchise Executives (ICFE).

Only minority applicants—African American, American Indian, Hispanic, and Asian American—will be considered. Application deadline is June 15.
