The Bicycle Casino Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The Bicycle Casino Scholarship Program has established a scholarship program to assist children of Bicycle Casino team members who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

This scholarship 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 are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Bicycle Casino Scholarship Program must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be dependent* children, under the age of 26, of full-time Bicycle Casino team members who have a minimum of one year employment with the company as of the application deadline date.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural or legally adopted children or stepchildren, living in the team member’s household or primarily supported by the team member, who are claimed as a dependent on the employee’s tax return.
  • Be high school seniors or graduates or current college undergraduates who plan to enroll or students who already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school.
  • Must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent).

Dependent children of team members earning more than $100,000 a year are not eligible.

Award Amounts
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $5,000. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Awards can only be received a maximum of three times.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or team member of The Bicycle Hotel and Casino play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Notification
Applicants will be notified in late April. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of The Bicycle Hotel and Casino. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
