Constellation Scholars Program
Deadline to apply: March 15, 2023 3:00 pm Central Time

Constellation has established a scholarship program to assist high school seniors who plan to continue their education in college.

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.

Applicants to the Constellation Scholars Program must:

  • Live in Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania, or Maryland
  • Self-identify as Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Hispanic or Latino, Asian, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander
  • Be high school seniors
  • Plan to enroll in part-time or full-time undergraduate study at an accredited college or university or for the entire upcoming academic year
  • Be pursuing a major in Engineering – specifically Mechanical, Electric, Nuclear – Computer Science, IT, Cybersecurity, Finance or Business

Constellation employees and children of employees are not eligible.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to 5 awards will be granted. Awards may be renewed for up to four additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance (maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale), continued part-time or full-time enrollment, and continuation of the program by Constellation.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Constellation. Payment is made in August.

Selection of Recipients

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

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.

Preference may be given to applicants attending a Historically Black College or University (HBCU).

Selection of finalists is made by Scholarship America. Constellation will select recipients. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

As part of your application, you must upload the following:

  • A current, complete transcript of grades. Grade reports are not accepted. Transcripts must display student name, school name, grades and credit hours for each course and term in which each course was taken.
  • Copy of the first two pages of the most recently filed IRS Form 1040 used for the Financial Information section of the application.

NOTE: If you are providing SAT or ACT test scores, and those scores are not listed on your high school transcript, you will need to upload a copy of your test score report(s) separately. If you are uploading a college transcript, those scores are not required.

Your application is not complete unless all required materials are submitted electronically.
