The Boston Properties Scholarship Program was established in 2000 in recognition of our 30th anniversary. It is funded by Boston Properties to invest in the future of our society and to give back to those that have given so much to Boston Properties.
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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability or national origin.
Children of Boston Properties Officers are ineligible.
Scholarship awards range from $2,000 to $8,000. Potential recipients who demonstrate no financial need will be eligible to receive an honorarium of $1,000. Awards are not renewable. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Any one student may receive a maximum of four (4) scholarships.
Awards are for post-high school undergraduate study and graduate study.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an outside appraisal. Once recipients are selected, financial need is assessed to determine the amount of each award. Recipients who do not demonstrate financial need or whose parents choose not to supply the requested financial information will be eligible to receive a $1,000 honorarium. Instructions for completing the Financial Data section of the application are provided.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Boston Properties play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified by email in 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.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Boston Properties. Payment is made in one installment in early August.
Also, as part of your application, an online recommendation must be completed on your behalf by 3:00 p.m. CT on March 18, 2020.
