The Baldor Electric Company Foundation was formed to foster meaningful and positive corporate citizenship in the communities where Baldor does business, through the funding of scholarships, capital gifts, and other charitable contributions. As a part of this mission, the Baldor Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals.

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

Applicants will be notified in April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
