Students receive $10K in scholarships for sales education
The Sales Education Foundation (SEF) announced the recipients of ten individual scholarships. Ten $1,000 gifts recognize students who demonstrated an understanding of the importance of sales education. Recipients represent seven universities.
“Our scholarships demonstrate our commitment to the future workforce by helping deserving, dedicated students focus on their educations at a time when college costs are rising faster than inflation,” said Jeanne Frawley, Executive Director of the SEF.
Students from all universities were eligible for the awards, provided they were pursuing sales education in the 2012-13 school year. Applicants answered three questions highlighting the most measurable differences a sales education makes for students and their employers.
“Sales education provides the fundamental skills for success in any career,” according to recipient Kaelyn Iciek-Nicks (Michigan State University). “After experiencing sales education first-hand, I am able to adapt to new environments at a rapid pace, maintain consultative relationships, and think of innovative solutions for a diverse audience.”
