The Enterprise Book Award will help students meet their academic and career goals.

The college will present qualified students with an electronic book voucher, which will be used to pay for books at a college bookstore. The bookstore will inform the Financial Aid Office about how much the student used to purchase textbooks and will then disburse funding to pay for the textbooks.

EFSC students will not pay for books out of pocket, and limits will be set on how much students can spend.

The Enterprise Holdings Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the company that, through its regional subsidiaries, operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands.

Started in 1982 by the company’s founder Jack Taylor, the Enterprise Holdings Foundation was established to allow Enterprise to give back to the communities where its customers and employees live and work. The Foundation has contributed more than $230 million to thousands of registered non-profit efforts since its inception.
