CIG Financial has established a scholarship program, in partnership with the Orange Country Community Foundation, to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college.
The 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.
Applicants to the CIGives Scholarship Program must:
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 or $5,000 award. Up to 4 awards will be granted. Awards are one time only. Past recipients may not reapply.
Awards are for undergraduate and graduate 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 educational and career goals and objectives, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
Financial need is not considered. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of CIG Financial 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.
All applicants will be notified in June.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Orange County Community Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in September. The award check is made payable to your educational institution and is added to your financial aid package. If your full cost of attendance has been met through other scholarships or grants, your scholarship award may be rescinded.
As part of your application, you must upload the following:
One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than May 10, 2022 3:00 pm CT.
Your application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.
