The Cigna Scholars program was established to assist dependents and grandchildren of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.
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. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $3,000 award. Per IRS guidelines, up to 25% of applicants will receive a scholarship. The number of scholarships awarded is determined by the amount of applicants.
Applicants may reapply to the program each year; however, awards are not renewed automatically.
Awards are only for undergraduate or vocational-technical school study.
The awards will be issued in U.S. currency. Awards will be made payable to the school.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of educational and career goals and objectives, and unusual personal or family circumstances.
Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Cigna or the Cigna Foundation play a part in the selection process. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in July. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Cigna Foundation. Payments are made payable to the college in one installment in August.
