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.

    *Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the associate’s household or primarily supported by the associate.
