The Carnation Enterprises Scholarship

About Carnation Enterprises:

scholarshipCarnation Enterprises is a small, multi-national company with offices and staff in the US, Asia, and Africa. We manufacture and distribute banking equipment worldwide. Despite being an established business, we have been able to maintain a startup mindset. This helps us succeed in a very competitive business environment.

About Our Scholarship:

Over the last 14 years of business, we have gained inside knowledge on how startups can evolve and stay successful. Because finances, business models and the needs of clients change quickly, it is essential to understand the ever evolving climate of business and how to interact with it. We know many students will be honing their skills for the future in their studies. As modern technology has made it much easier to advertise and start a business, we are interested to see the approaches students may adopt for their own potential future enterprise. With this in mind, we have created a $1,000 scholarship for one student interested in current and future business growth. In addition to our scholarship, we will also be considering top applicants for future internships at Carnation Enterprises.
