Congratulations again to our scholarship winner for the 2023 Franchise.Law Entrepreneur Scholarship, Bailey Graves!

No matter a person’s age or experience level, anyone can become an entrepreneur. However, we believe one of the most essential measures of a successful entrepreneur is how much passion and enthusiasm they have behind an idea. Typically, the best businesses grow and thrive from the deep-seated passion behind a single idea.

The attorneys at Franchise.Law values supporting entrepreneurs because they ARE entrepreneurs. Attorneys Jason Power and Jonathan Barber understand the hard work and dedication it takes to own a business and stay on top of the latest industry trends.

Franchise.Law is proud to bring back the Entrepreneur Scholarship for another year! This scholarship is designed to support aspiring and future entrepreneurs and allows students to explore why they are passionate about becoming an entrepreneur. Students will be asked to come up with an idea for a business and share how they would stay on top of that specific industry’s trends. The student who best expresses their business details and ideas will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.


The scholarship is open to any student currently enrolled in an accredited community college, undergraduate, or graduate program in the United States.
