Ash Grove Cement Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Ash Grove Cement Company has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college.

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. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Ash Grove Cement Scholarship Program must:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of full-time employees of Ash Grove Cement Company (U.S. and Canadian) who have a minimum of one-year employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year. Canadian applicants must be students in their final year of secondary school or secondary school graduates who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time university-level studies for the entire upcoming academic year.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Up to 5 awards will be granted. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree, or equivalent, is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon maintaining a 3.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) in full-time study, continued employment of the student’s parent at Ash Grove Cement Company (U.S. and Canadian), and continuation of the program by Ash Grove Cement Company.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
