The Center Point Energy Scholarship was established to assist dependents of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational programs. Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, leadership experiences and extra-curricular activities.
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. 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 are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the CenterPoint Energy Scholarship Program must meet all of the following criteria:
Eight (8) students will be selected as scholarship recipients. If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,000 award. The CenterPoint Energy parent/guardian employee must continue to be an eligible employee at the time each payment is processed.
Awards may be renewed for up to three additional consecutive years. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance per semester, as defined in the initial application grade point eligibility requirements, the student remaining age 25 and under, and the parent remaining an eligible employee at the time each award payment is processed.
Students receiving a CenterPoint Energy Scholarship are not eligible to receive a Chairman’s Scholarship Fund during the same academic year.
Awards are for undergraduate and graduate study.
