Local high school senior wins businesses scholarship

Submitted By Michelle Orrock

On April 22, 2013, The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Young Entrepreneur Foundation (YEF) announced the California recipients of the 11th annual NFIB Young Entrepreneur Awards, a scholarship program designed to reward and encourage entrepreneurial talents among high school students. Rajiv Samagond of Fremont, a senior at American High, was one of five 2013 YEF Award winners from California.

The program was established to raise awareness among the nation's youth about the critical role that private enterprise and entrepreneurship play in the building of America. Since 2003, the NFIB Young Entrepreneur Foundation has awarded 2,620 scholarships to graduating high school seniors totaling more than $3.2 million.

To qualify for an NFIB Young Entrepreneur Award, students must be seniors in high school who own and/or operate their own small business. They were required to write an essay describing their entrepreneurial endeavors and future goals. NFIB members around the country interviewed the applicants for the Young Entrepreneur Awards. An independent, outside committee selects a group of qualified semi-finalists.
