Grasshopper Entrepreneur Scholarship


Founded by two entrepreneurs, Grasshopper has been making it easier to start and grow a small business since 2003. Back then, we started as just two guys with a dream and to date have served over 250,000 entrepreneurs (and we're still growing).

Today our commitment to helping entrepreneurs is stronger than ever, and to that end we are proud to introduce the Grasshopper Entrepreneur Scholarship, designed to help young entrepreneurs afford the rising cost of education and help them along the road to entrepreneurship.


Any current college student or incoming freshman enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program in a Spring, Summer, or Fall 2017 semester. Student must be enrolled at an accredited American college, university or trade school.
