FormSwift Scholarship

Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: December 15, 2018

Why a FormSwift Scholarship Program

We love to support and grow the nation’s burgeoning class of entrepreneurs. It’s why we developed and continue to maintain free documents for business use, and it’s the same reason why we have developed our Scholarship Program. Moreover, our Scholarship Program is for driven, up-and-coming, entrepreneurs who are ready to commit to building a better world through their business ideas.

Also, by creating a unique business plan infographic for their scholarship entries, young business dreamers can build upon and practice the skills that will be required of them at their jobs after college. In short, we envision our Scholarship Program as not only an award that will help students in the present, but a test that will help them hone in on their future career paths.


A) You must be a graduating senior in high school or enrolled in college. Community college, professional college, and graduate students are all eligible, in addition to undergraduates at four-year universities.

B) You may not be related to any of FormSwift’s staff or our extended family.

C) International students, including students from a college or graduating from a high school outside the United States, are also eligible to apply.

D) We reserve the right to verify date of high school graduation and/or college enrollment.
