Hilltop Holdings Inc. has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college.
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. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
Applicants to the Buffalo Scholars Program must be:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to 8 awards will be granted. Assuming there are qualified applicants, at least one recipient will be selected from each company and the racial/ethnic and gender diversity of the recipient pool will reflect the diversity of the applicant pool.
Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in late April.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Hilltop Holdings Inc. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of educational and career goals and objectives, and an online recommendation.
Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Hilltop Holdings Inc. play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
