Scholarship Foundation

Nick Zizi is president and founder of Nick Zizi Enterprises. He was born and raised in Miami-Dade County and is the product of the public school system. Growing up, Nick’s parents instilled the value of a college education and insisted earlier on that it is the gateway to a promising future. Upon completing high school, Nick was faced with many obstacles to getting into college, the first being affording the high cost of a college education. Nick struggled to get through as he had to pay much of his tuition and fees out of pocket. It was at that time that Nick made a conscious decision that if he became successful in life, he would pave the way for others who strive to better their lives, much like he did. As a business professional, Nick understands the concept of hard work and the importance of giving back.
