The Mission of the scholarship is to recognize that speakers are born early in life and the journey to build a business as a speaker can be a long and challenging one. This scholarship will serve to nurture an entrepreneur of this generation and mentor them to successfully establish a business as a professional speaker, whilst also provide the association with increased perspective from this younger generation.
