The Harvard Business Services business scholarship program was created to help ambitious students chase their dreams by providing a $1,000 award. In 2021, we will award two $1,000 scholarships for business majors and entrepreneurs — one to a student with a for-profit business concept and the other to a non-profit concept.
New this year: As an alternative to the written essay, we are now accepting video essay submissions!
We're looking for students with the vision, drive, and brilliant idea that can generate the next great business. Students with an existing company and a vision for growth are also encouraged to apply for our scholarships for entrepreneurs.
PLUS - In addition to the entrepreneur scholarship itself, the students winning our business scholarships will receive a free incorporation package from Harvard Business Services! We'll help you file and form your new corporation or LLC for no cost.
Harvard Business Services has been helping entrepreneurs form Delaware LLCs and corporations since 1981. We are a Delaware Registered Agent and have formed over 200,000 companies. We pride ourselves on making business formation simple by providing top-notch customer service while maintaining the lowest prices in the industry.
Please note: We encourage all applicants and student entrepreneurs to perform thorough research and seek expert advice on how to best develop, launch, protect, and grow their businesses.
