This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships 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.

  • A high school senior or high school graduate planning to enroll or a student already enrolled in full-time study leading to a Bachelor’s Degree at an accredited college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.
    Students beginning their studies at a two-year community college who plan to transfer to a four-year school are eligible to apply.

Children and stepchildren of Senior Executives (General Managers, Directors, and Vice Presidents and above) are ineligible to participate in the program.

Award information:

  • If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $2,000 to $5,000.

Applicants will be notified by early May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Arrow Electronics, Inc. Payments are made in one installment in August.

Recipient’s parent must be actively employed at Arrow Electronics, Inc. at the time scholarship payments are issued.

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
  • An online recommendation

Once scholarship recipients are selected, financial data is reviewed to determine the amount of each award, ranging from $2,000 to $5,000.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Arrow Electronics, Inc. play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

  • 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.
