Payment of Scholarships
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Casey’s General Stores, Inc. Awards will be paid in one installment in early August. Any unused portion of a students scholarship will be reimbursed by the school to Scholarship America.
Scholarship recipients must enroll in the educational programs no later than the fall of the year in which their awards are given. In order to remain eligible for scholarship payments, recipients must maintain a consecutive fall and spring semester and if the recipient is a dependent of a Casey’s employee, must remain at full-time status (completing a minimum of 12 credits per semester). A scholarship is automatically forfeited if the student falls below full-time status or drops a semester. Recipients have no obligations to Casey’s. They are, however, required to provide Scholarship America with current transcripts and to notify Scholarship America of any change of address, school enrollment, or other pertinent information.
