Poppy Energy Scholarship

About Poppy Energy

Scholarship Details and Entry

At Poppy Energy, we understand the complexities of running a business and see a lack of women owners, especially in the construction industry. To help raise awareness and to bring a spot light to women owned business, we will award a $1,000 scholarship to the winner of a creative and authentic response to an essay prompt.

To be eligible for this scholarship, students must submit 1,500 word essay on the following question:

  • How can the US achieve gender equality in business ownership and revenue?

Additional Prompt Information

According to National Association of Woman Business Owners (source), 39% of all privately held firms are women-owned and account for 4.2% of US overall revenue. This is a huge discrepancy between ownership and revenue when analyzing just the women owned companies.

How can we achieve more women-owned business and increase women-owned business revenues?

Feel free to write broadly on this topic to reflect personal experience as well as what local, state, federal and private institutions can do to help and achieve this equality.


Deadline is October 15 of each calendar year (reoccurring scholarship).

Who is eligible?

Full-time students currently accepted to or enrolled at an American two- or four-year college or university

How will the winner get announced?

Poppy Energy will review all submissions and the winner of the scholarship will be selected by November 1 and will be contacted via email. Please make sure to provide us with an accurate email address. The scholarship funds will be distributed by December 1.
