Air Liquide America Foundation Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The Air Liquide America Foundation Scholarship Program was established in 1993 to recognize the academic achievements of its U.S.-based, full-time employees’ children who are pursuing post-secondary education. Now in its 29th year, the program is open to all eligible children of the Americas hub, U.S. NAM Cluster and other Group or WBL affiliated employees.

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 Air Liquide America Foundation Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of full-time U.S. based employees of the Americas hub, U.S. NAM Cluster and other Group or WBL affiliated employees who have a minimum of two years of employment with the company as of the application deadline.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current post-secondary 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.

Award Information
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by Air Liquide America Foundation, Inc.

A one-time Arthur P. Slaughter Scholarship in the amount of $2,000 will be awarded to the top-ranked recipient. This will be in addition to the recipient’s Air Liquide America Foundation scholarship and is nonrenewable.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

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

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, an outside appraisal, and financial need. Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award, ranging from $1,000 to $3,000. Recipients whose parents do not demonstrate financial need will be eligible to receive a minimum award only.Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Air Liquide America Foundation, Inc. play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Air Liquide America Foundation, Inc. Payments are made in August.
