Cengage has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ dependent children who plan to start and/or continue education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
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 of the Cengage Scholarship Program award must be:
*Dependent child is defined as your child by birth, adoption or permanent placement; and/or your stepchild or child of your domestic partner, if living with you.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,500 award.
Up to eighteen (18) awards will be granted.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, enrollment during the entire upcoming academic year, continued employment of the student’s parent at Cengage at the time award checks are issued, and continuation of the program by Cengage.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, and unusual personal or family circumstances.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Cengage 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.
You will be notified of the status of your application in February.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Cengage. Payment is made on August 1 contingent on continued parental employment at Cengage at the time award checks are issued.
