The Clarke Companies have established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to further their education in college or vocational school programs.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships 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 race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Jill and Michael Fotiades Scholarship must:
*Full-time enrollment is defined as a minimum of 12 credits per semester or term.
**Certification programs must be through an accredited institution and must run on a standard academic semester calendar. Certification programs must be a minimum of one semester/term in length and applicants must be enrolled at the time awards are disbursed in August.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $10,000 award. Up to 3 awards will be granted. 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 and continuation of the program by Clarke.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Awards may be used for any education-related expenses.
All applicants will be notified in April.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Clarke. Payment is made in August.
