Casey Family Programs (CFP) has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Casey Family Programs Employee Dependent Education Benefit Program must:
Up to three educational benefits awards of $2,500 each will be awarded under the program as follows:
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation. Financial need is not considered.
Awards shall be made in a manner that reasonably represents the diversity of Casey Family Programs’ workforce and locations and that reaches as many employee families as possible. To that end, (a) applicants may receive an award only once, and (b) employee families may not receive an award more frequently than every other year.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Casey Family Programs play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
All applicants will be notified in January.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Casey Family Programs. Payments are made in one installment in January.
Award checks will be payable jointly to the student recipient and his/her/their CFP employee parent. Benefit payments are taxable to the CFP employee.
