Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:
Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of the Chia Family Foundation play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $5,000 to $15,000. 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 at the same college.
Each year of eligible renewal, the award will increase by $1,000. Recipients who plan to transfer schools must attend another eligible private non-profit college ranked in the top 25 National Liberal Arts Colleges at the time of transfer.
A deferral of up to one academic year may be granted for any reason.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified of their status in late-March.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Chia Family Foundation. Payment is made in August.
