How to Apply
Applicants for the Nordstrom Scholarship Program are to write an essay and submit to Nordstrom. This essay varies slightly from year to year. Semi-finalists are then chosen and required to submit letters of recommendation from their teacher at their high school.
The students that are selected as finalists are to have an interview with a predetermined selection committee. The committee is made up of business leaders, educators, community leaders, and various Nordstrom representatives.

Nordstrom Scholarship awards successful applicants as much as $10000 for their college education. This scholarship fund is given to a range of 40 to 80 successful students.
The funds are paid straight to the 4-year university where the student is registered. The payment obligations were put to be delivered at equal installments over the span of four years. Nordstrom initially used social media marketing and other internet marketing places for linking to students, but printable kits to senior high school staff were also offered.
Unfortunately, Nordstrom Scholarship Program ended in 2016 and the Nordstrom Inc. is yet to commence fresh programs and application for this.
