CareSource Scholars Program
Application status: Closed

A college education is increasingly important for success in today’s fast-paced world. CareSource is dedicated to helping students fund their college experience—especially those who are part of our extended CareSource family.

The CareSource Scholars Program was launched in 2016 to celebrate the CareSource Foundation’s 10th anniversary. Five college scholarships will be awarded annually to students whose parent or full-time guardian is employed by CareSource. We reward students who are highly motivated, have financial need for assistance and demonstrate the drive to succeed—often despite personal obstacles.

This 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, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the CareSource Scholars Program must:

  • Be the children or in guardianship of a full-time CareSource employee
  • Be a current high school senior or current college student
  • Plan to attend or be currently attending any accredited 2- or 4-year college or university in the United States
  • Fill out application completely (including all required financial information) to be considered

Selection of Recipients

The program will utilize non-standard SAI recipient selection procedures including the consideration of financial need, past academic performance, leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of career and educational goals, and unusual personal or family circumstance.

Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need. (The application will utilize a Scholarship America standard financial section to facilitate the determination of need).

Attention will be given to employee location and awards given in direct proportion to the number of applications with respect to ethnicity, provided there are qualified applicants.

Awards

Five $2,500 scholarships will be awarded each year to a current high school senior or current college student.

  • Four (4) general scholarships
  • One (1) J. Thomas Maultsby Scholarship for Community Service for a student exhibiting a strong background in community service.

Scholarships are given one time and thus, non-renewable.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

CareSource Scholars are announced in January.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarships will be mailed directly to the college or university.
