CIT Group has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at any accredited two- or four-year college, university, vocational-technical or institution of advanced education.
This scholarship program is administered by Scholarship America, the largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals in the U.S. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
CIT will determine both the number and value of awards to be granted.
Awards cannot exceed the cost of study. The award checks will be issued in U.S. currency.
Awards are one-time only. Past recipients may not reapply.
Awards are for undergraduate study only and cannot exceed educational costs.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
Financial need will not be considered.
Academic evaluation of international applicants will include a review of the grade/mark average based on the grading system used in the applicant’s country and a review of the results of academic examinations.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. CIT will determine both the number and value of awards to be granted. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in early August. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
