If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award.

Up to twenty (20) awards will be granted each year and will be issued in U.S. currency.

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 enrollment in a full-time course of study and maintaining a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.25 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent), continued employment of the student’s parent at Andersen Corporation and continuation of the program by Andersen Corporation.
