About the scholarships

Lisa Ring and Family are passionate and committed to supporting new entrepreneurs and enabling their growth. The first Lisa Ring and Family Scholarships were awarded in 2022 following a generous donation from the family, which will allow for the scholarships to continue over the next four years.

Often, the available seed funding and support for startups target more established and fast-growing startups. The Lisa Ring and Family Scholarships provide support for founders who have a great business idea yet are still in the early stages of building their new business.

The scholarships are designed to help you advance your business to the next stage in your journey and give you confidence for future success.
