Ervin J. LeCoque Leadership Scholars Program for Sons and Daughters
Application status: Closed

AptarGroup, 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 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 Ervin J. LeCoque Leadership Scholars Program for Sons and Daughters must be:

  • An eligible child* of an employee of AptarGroup or Aptar companies; the employee must work full-time and have completed at least one year of continuous employment as of the application deadline date or work part-time and work a minimum of 30 hours per week and have completed at least five years of continuous employment as of the application deadline date.
    *The term “child” means natural or legally adopted children, stepchildren, and legal wards up to age 23, who are supported wholly by the parent or guardian.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary 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.


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

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree or certificate is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a cumulative 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at an AptarGroup Company, and continuation of the program by AptarGroup, Inc.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.


All applicants will be notified in late April.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of AptarGroup, Inc. Payment is made in early August with award checks made payable to the educational institution.

Selection of Recipients

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
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award. Family adjusted gross income may not exceed $125,000.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of AptarGroup or AptarGroup company 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.

As part of your application, you must upload the following:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.

NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload a copy of your test score report(s) separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.


One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than March 5, 2024 3:00 pm Central Time.
