Calico Trailers Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Calico Trailers Mfg. Co. has established a scholarship program to assist high school seniors who plan to continue their education in college. 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. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Calico Trailers Scholarship Program must:

  • Be high school seniors in the Quitman School District
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college or university for the entire upcoming academic year.

Selection of Recipients

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, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.

Financial need is not considered.

Selection of finalists is made by Scholarship America and Calico Trailers Mfg. Co. will select the recipient. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Calico Trailers Mfg. Co. Payment is made in August.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award. One award will be granted each year. The award may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent) and continuation of the program by Calico Trailers Mfg. Co.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.
