The Jacques Bobst Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: April 3, 2023 3:00 pm CT

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

Applicants to The Jacques Bobst Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children of the Bobst Group North America employees who have a minimum of one year of employment as of the application deadline.
  • High school seniors or final year secondary school students who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.

Awards

Up to three (3) awards will be granted. The two top ranking applicants will each receive a $4,000 USD award. The next ranking applicant will receive an award of $2,000 USD.

Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a certificate or bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at Bobst Group North America and continuation of the program by Bobst Group North America.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May.
