Bremer Employee Dependents' Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Bremer 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. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Bremer play a part in the selection.

Applicants to the Bremer Employee Dependents’ Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children, up to the age of 25, of current full-time and part-time benefits eligible employees of Bremer who have a minimum of one year of employment with the company as of the application deadline.
  • High school seniors or graduates, or current postsecondary undergraduates, who plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university, vocational-technical school or graduate school for the entire upcoming academic year.

*Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until degree is earned, whichever occurs first. In no case will any student receive the award for more than four years (initial award year then up to three additional years). Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, continued employment of the student’s parent at Bremer, continued dependency of the student and continuation of the program by Bremer.

Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study (first graduate degree only).


Applicants will be notified by the end of April via email. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
