Running your business gives you enough to think about every day that you shouldn't also have to worry about how you're going to afford college for your dependents or pay for improvements that your business needs to grow.
The NASE helps ease your burden by offering college scholarships for your dependents, and continuing education scholarships and business development grants for you.
