The Bonsai Finance Entrepreneur Scholarship celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit in high performing students.

It’s an attitude and approach to thinking that actively seeks out change, rather than waiting to adapt to change. The scholarship provides a one-time payment of $2,500 for current or future education costs.
