MIDLAND — Northwood University last week announced the Betsy and Dick DeVos Scholars for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Scholarship Competition.

This is an annual scholarship available to new students in the full-time bachelor’s in business administration or four-year BBA/MBA program. The students who win the renewable scholarship competition will receive up to $10,000. This may be combined with Academic Merit Scholarships which can be over $10,000 per year and other awards for which they may qualify.

The awards are based upon submission of a scholarship application and essay by Feb. 10, academic merit and a student’s demonstrated talent in entrepreneurship in which the student must submit a demonstrated entrepreneurship activity in which they participated or initiated.

In addition, a visit to Nortwood’s Midland campus is required on Feb. 18, 2012, Feb. 25 or March 3, for applicants to make a presentation and be interviewed. Students must describe how their activity aligns with entrepreneurship, free enterprise and the meaning of the American Dream.

“We are excited to offer bright, young entrepreneurs this scholarship opportunity and enable them to work toward their dream of growing a start-up business,” said Northwood president Keith A. Pretty.
