Abbott Laboratories Employees Credit Union (ALEC) has established a scholarship program to assist members of the credit union who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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 ALEC Bright Future Scholarship must:
**Employees of ALEC and children of employees of ALEC are ineligible to apply.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to five (5) awards will be granted (1 per recipient). Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
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, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.
Selection of finalists is made by Scholarship America. ALEC will select recipients from the group of finalists. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of ALEC. Payments are made in one installment the first week of August.
