Pathway to Higher Education

The four-year, full-tuition Babson NFTE Scholarship is for students who have participated in Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship programs. First, please advise NFTE Alumni Services that you have completed the scholarship application procedures, which are: apply for admission to Babson College (you’ll be asked to register); meet admission and financial aid application deadlines; submit, through your applicant status page, a résumé detailing your NFTE accomplishments and experiences; email any questions to [email protected] or call (781) 239-4317. The application deadline is February 1. 

To apply for The Baum and Wallace Scholarship at Cornell University, a student must first be admitted, which guarantees them financial aid at Cornell based upon their level of need. All scholarships make up part of that aid but are not awarded until students meet with the Office of Financial Aid in August of their first year. At that point, students take a survey that helps the office match them with all appropriate scholarships.

Syracuse University offers two NFTE student scholarships for eligible, entering students. Each scholarship is equal to full tuition and mandatory fees and are renewable provided the recipient remains enrolled full time at Syracuse University and meets standard academic progress for up to four years. The scholarship is for academic year study. Students must be a U.S. citizen or an eligible noncitizen (permanent resident) and must file for financial aid and submit both the CSS/Financial Aid profile and FASFA to be considered. The Office of Financial Aid and Scholarship Programs will identify admitted scholars (by April 21, 2024) who are alumni of the NFTE program.
