SYRACUSE, N.Y. – July 30, 2019 —Bonsai Finance is pleased to announce Lauryn Johnson as the winner of the 2019 Entrepreneur Scholarship. Miss. Johnson will be awarded $2,500 from the Bonsai Finance team to help her further her education and cover associated expenses. Lauryn will be pursuing a degree in Biology at Colgate University, a private liberal arts college in Hamilton, New York.

From over 2,000 applicants, the scholarship committee was especially impressed with Lauryn’s original idea for a community service organization, as well as her outstanding contribution and effort in teaching classical art forms to school age children.

“On behalf of Bonsai Finance, I’d like to congratulate our winner and would like to thank everyone else working to give back to their communities through social entrepreneurship. Granting this award is a humbling experience as it gives me the opportunity to learn about so many people and their projects that are making an immense contribution. It was a difficult choice this year as there were so many inspiring candidates” said Britton Smith of Bonsai Finance.

The Bonsai Finance Entrepreneur Scholarship celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit in high performing students. At Bonsai Finance, we believe the Entrepreneurial spirit is a mindset that embraces critical questioning, innovation, service, and continuous improvement. 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. Eligible applicants must be high school seniors or graduates who are already enrolled or will enroll at an accredited college, university, or post-graduate technical or vocational school.

Smith went on to say, “Since the inception of this company, we’ve always been on a mission to do one thing: help people solve their financial problems. We understand that, while earning a college degree can bring unprecedented opportunity, it can also present innumerable financial challenges. We’re proud to be able to help this young entrepreneur solve part of that dilemma and gain hope for a bright future.”
