The Brothers Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The Fehsenfeld Family is pleased to announce the Brothers Scholarship Program for the 2021-2022 academic year. The purpose of the program is to assist the children of Heritage employees with the cost of higher education and to encourage those students to invest in their future by obtaining a college degree. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

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, gender, disability or national origin.

Applicants to The Brothers Scholarship Program must be:

    • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, of full-time employees of a Heritage Group Company. Employees are required to have worked a minimum of 1,400 hours in the current or prior calendar 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.
    • High school seniors, graduates or GED holders who plan to enroll or students who are already enrolled in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.


  • Sons and daughters of company officers are not eligible to apply to the program.

Award Information:

  • If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of $2,000.
  • Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first.
  • Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance (maintenance of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average of a 4.0 scale), full-time enrollment, continued employment of the student’s parent at a Heritage Group Company, and continuation of the program by The Heritage Group Scholarship Fund.

The number of awards granted will be geographically proportionate to the number of applications received from each state, provided qualified applications are received.

No more than two scholarships per family will be awarded each year.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

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
  • An online recommendation

Financial need will also be considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of The Heritage Group play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.


Applicants will be notified in May. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
