Baker Commodities Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

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

Applicants to the Baker Commodities Scholarship Program must:

  • Be dependent* children, age 26 and under, of full-time Baker Commodities, Inc. and subsidiary domestic employees who have a minimum of two (2) years of 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, 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

Children of corporate officers are ineligible.

Awards

Provided there are qualified applications, awards will be distributed as follows:

  • One (1) award of $2,500 will be granted to a student attending a 2-year college or vocational-technical school
  • One (1) award of $5,000 will be granted to a student attending a 4-year college or university

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, and continued employment of the student’s parent at Baker Commodities, Inc.

Award amounts will be adjusted if a recipient changes their school type.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
