Action, Inc. Family Scholarship
Application status: Closed

Action, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

Beginning in 1981, Dan Johnston and Ron Wright laid the groundwork with hard work, dedication and loyalty to create the company we all call home. It is with great pleasure we are proud to offer family scholarships in their names. Our hope is the recipients of these scholarships can pursue their education dreams just as our founders pursued their business dreams.

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. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Action, Inc. Family Scholarship must:

  • Be dependent* children, age 24 and under, of full-time Action, Inc. employees who have a minimum of two years of employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

Up to two awards will be granted. The top two candidates will receive awards of $2,500, named for the two founders of Action, Inc.; Dan Johnston and Ron Wright.

Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

Applicants will be notified in February. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Selection of Recipients
