Scholarship Program

The NVSBC Scholarship Program has supported and opened doors to newly established veteran business owners who focus as federal contractors or subcontractors since 2007.  This Scholarship Program brings together a diverse cohort of veteran business owners who aim to receive training, networking access, and grow their emerging business by participating at NVSBC's VETS Conference and much more.  Each scholarship recipient is provided unique opportunities to support their business growth and professional development including event access, public recognition, introductions, and promotion activity.

The scholarship covers the cost of registration fees, 3 nights lodging, and travel expenses.  The scholarship will give the recipient(s) an opportunity to network with other veteran business owners, prime contractors and government agencies in order to gain the knowledge needed to do business with the federal government. VETS’22 is scheduled for May 17 – 20, 2022 at The Doubletree by Hilton at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida.


Our generous sponsor makes the 2022 NVSBCS Scholarship Program possible. Thank you, MIRACORP for your generous sponsorship!
