A. O. Smith Foundation, Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees 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.
Applicants to the A. O. Smith Corporation Scholarship Program must:
Children of A. O. Smith Corporation officers are ineligible.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $500 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.
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 educational and career goals and objectives, and any unusual personal or family circumstances.
Once recipients are selected, financial need will be considered in determining the amount of the award. Recipients who demonstrate no need will be eligible to receive an honorarium of $500.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of A. O. Smith Corporation play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in late May.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of A. O. Smith Foundation, Inc. Payment is made in August.
