NASE Succeed Scholarship Helps Self Employed Further Their Education

In this economy, whatever you can do to get a leg up makes all the difference. For the self employed, it’s hard to compete on price or offerings, so sometimes it’s just being a little smarter than the competition that wins the business.

The National Association for the Self Employed (NASE) recognizes the importance that continuing education plays for small business owners, and to that effect, the organization is offering its Succeed Scholarship to members.

scholarship

Applicants can be awarded up to $4,000 to put to use toward:

  • Continuing education through university or college courses
  • To attend training courses for business licensing and certification
  • Attend conferences and seminars that will help you grow your business

The business world is changing daily (not to mention the marketing landscape!) so getting a class or two under your belt, or attending conferences that teach you the tools of your trade can help you succeed. And with more people affected by the recession’s unemployment rate, you’ve got more competition than ever with your small business.

So why not make yourself smarter?

To apply for a Succeed Scholarship, you have to be a NASE member (at $72 annually, it’s worth the cost of admission for the scholarship and other benefits), show how the scholarship money would fulfill a business need and how it would improve your business, and submit a business plan or resume.

NASE has some other great scholarships and grants, so check them out if you’re serious about continuing your business education.
