Since 1994 Nordstorm, one of the US’s premiere department stores, has been giving back to the community by offering scholarship rewards to outstanding college bound high students. This year’s program, dubbed “TEN4U” has expanded to offering 80 high school juniors the chance to earn a $10,000. The scholarships will be paid to the four-year college of the recipient’s choice in equal installments over four years.
“The expansion of the Nordstrom Scholarship is exciting because it means we are able to support even more deserving and hardworking young adults who are on the path to accomplishing great things,” said Erik Nordstrom, president of stores at Nordstrom. “Now, with educational funding an even greater challenge than ever, we feel extremely fortunate to give back in this very important way.”
High school juniors located in areas where Nordstrom operates a full-line store who demonstrate outstanding community involvement, scholastic achievement and are planning on applying for financial aid are welcome to apply for the scholarship.
How to Apply
Scholarship applications, which include an essay, must be submitted online between March 15 and May 16, 2011. Finalists will participate in an interview with a selection committee that includes educators, business leaders, community partners and Nordstrom representatives. Winning students will be notified by October 31, 2011.
