Denver, Pa., Student Developed Online Auction Site

Washington, D.C., August 4, 2010 – Zachary Gosling of Denver, Pa., was just 13 when he starting building an online auction website that would be supported by advertising and sponsorships, rather than by the big fees charged by giant auction site eBay. The creation of GozBay.com and several websites for local companies contributed to his selections as the National Association for the Self-Employed’s Future Entrepreneur for 2010.

As the NASE Future Entrepreneur, Gosling receives a college scholarship worth up to $24,000.

He receives $12,000 in the first year and can renew the scholarship for $4,000 in each of the next three years by meeting academic standards.

Gosling plans a major in economics and finance at Drexel University in Philadelphia. He graduated from Cocalico High School, where he maintained a 3.6 grade point average.

“Zach embodies the entrepreneurial spirit that is thriving in young people across America,” says NASE President Robert Hughes. “The NASE is proud that this scholarship will help Zach achieve his dreams for the future.”

The NASE Future Entrepreneur Scholarship is the largest scholarship of its kind in the U.S. and the only one that promotes the entrepreneurial philosophy. It is the flagship award of the NASE Scholarship Program, which has awarded over $1.9 million since its inception in 1989. In 2010, 20 students across the country received $4,000 scholarships for academic excellence.
