SALT LAKE CITY — Lendio, an online service helping people secure business financing, announced today a $2,500 scholarship for student entrepreneurs.

“My own journey as an entrepreneur began as a student in college,” said Brock Blake, Lendio CEO. “At the time, I was fortunate enough to receive a similar scholarship from an individual which allowed me to focus on academics and our startup without the worry of a part-time, low-paying job. At the end of the day, I hope this scholarship will give future entrepreneurs the edge they need to be successful.”

The scholarship is called the Lendio Brock Blake Student Entrepreneur of the Year, which will award $2,500 every year to a student who has demonstrated excellence in entrepreneurship. It’s open to any college or university student that has started a company or is desirous to start a company while attending school.

To apply, students need to submit a 500-1,000 word essay to scholarship(at)lendio(dot)com. The deadline is July 1, 2012. The essay should cover things like:

“We are looking for future entrepreneurs with a vision to change their lives, and in the process, change part of the world,” Blake said. “This economy needs more young entrepreneurs building new, innovative companies that have a positive impact on their communities.”
