The Boston Scientific Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist dependent children of full-time U.S. based employees pursuing higher education at a two- or four-year college or university.
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. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
*Dependent children include those of the employee or their spouse or domestic partner for whom they are financially responsible, as well as natural, adopted, step-children and legal wards.
The authorized distribution for awards is up to $300,000 (new and renewal). Awards ranging from $1,500 to $5,000 will be granted, as follows:
If a high school student is selected to receive the Pete Nicholas Scholarship, they will only receive one type of scholarship award, not both.
Awards are renewable up to three years or until an associate’s or bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance and continued status as a full-time student.
In accordance with IRS regulations, the number of scholarships granted will be equal to or less than twenty-five percent (25%) of eligible applications received. These awards will be administered in full compliance with IRS Revenue Procedure 76-47.
Scholarship funds may only be used for tuition and academic fees and may not be used for room, board, books, or non-academic fees.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of the Boston Scientific Foundation play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Boston Scientific Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
Also as part of your application, one online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf by 3:00 p.m.
Central Time on May 15, 2020.
