Acuity, A Mutual Insurance Company, has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at any accredited institution of the student’s choice.
The 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 for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Acuity Scholarship Program must be:
Recipients attending a two-year or vocational school are eligible for a $1,000 award. Recipients attending a four-year state college or university or a private college or university are eligible for a $1,000 – $5,000 award; only one award for $5,000 will be granted each year. Recipients demonstrating no need or whose parents choose not to complete the financial section are eligible for a $1,000 award.
Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Students may receive an award up to four (4) times.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Once recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award.
Only one award may be given per family per year.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Acuity play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in May.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Acuity. Payments are made in Mid-August and Mid-December.
