Lawnstarter Lawntrepreneur Scholarship

The Lawntrepreneur Scholarship is Lawnstarter's way of funding tomorrow’s top entrepreneurs. Maybe you sowed the seeds of your entrepreneurial spirit by starting a lawn care company in high school. Maybe you’re planning on building the next big landscaping company. Either way, if you've got the entrepreneurial bug in you, then they want to help fund your dream. They’re fixing the large and disorganized lawn care industry, and they’re willing to grant $1000 (and instant access to their lawn care software) to any student we believe has the potential to change the world through entrepreneurship. If you are interested in starting your own business, they'd love to hear from you.
