Nordstrom Scholarship Program
Every year, the Nordstrom Scholarship Program seeks to award 40 students with scholarships worth $10,000.
To qualify, students must be high school juniors with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.7 and demonstrate financial need.
A regional committee of community leaders interviews each applicant and then helps to select the winners. Once the winners are selected, Nordstrom, along with the recipient’s friends and family, makes a surprise visit to each recipient’s school to tell them of their award.In order to keep the scholarship, students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.7.
They next application cycle opens in early 2013.
