Saunders Scholars Competition



Entrepreneur and philanthropist E. Philip Saunders has provided the Young Entrepreneurs Academy a ten year, transformational gift to provide young entrepreneurs, inventors, and innovators an opportunity to earn significant college scholarship awards. Mr. Saunders and the Academy believe in aligning passions, interest and skills with higher education. The YEA! Saunders Scholars Competition brings together the top student businesses from each YEA! class around the country to compete to win scholarship dollars, and business start-up prize packages.


Join us May 4th - 7th in Rochester, New York for a spectacular display of young people from around the country, competing to advance as one of 6 National Saunders Scholars Finalists selected to attend America's Small Business Summit in Washington, DC. Competition is Free and Open to the Public.
