Only complete applications will be reviewed. Applicants will be chosen based on complete well-thought answers to short answer and essay questions and include the following: community involvement, demonstrated interest in entrepreneurship or related fields and ability to overcome challenges. There is a limited amount of space for this program, so please take your time and thoroughly review the application.
The application consists of:
1. Application Form (required)
2. Short-Answer Questions (required)
3. Essay (required)
4. Recommendation (optional but highly preferred)
Recommendations provide an opportunity for the NFTE Admissions Staff to gain additional information about a student’s performance in a school or extra-curricular setting. Your recommender should be an adult who knows you in a professional, academic, or volunteer context and can relate specific and relevant details about your performance, skills, and unique abilities (i.e., a teacher, coach, program administrator, employer, or other adult). Relatives may not provide a recommendation.
Upon receiving your application materials, your application will be carefully reviewed. Students will be notified of their application status within one month of the application deadline.
