Crown Battery Scholarship Program
Deadline to apply: February 16, 2023 3:00 pm CT

Crown Battery has established a scholarship program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship 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, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Crown Battery Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children, ages 17-24, of current Crown Battery employees who have a minimum of six (6) months of employment as of the application deadline.
  • High school seniors or graduates or be current post-secondary undergraduates.
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two-year or four-year college, university or community college for the entire upcoming academic year.

*Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $1,000 award. Up to five (5) awards will be granted.

Awards are renewable up to three years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance defined as maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or the equivalent) and continued parental employment.

Scholarship America will select up to 15 finalists and Crown Battery Manufacturing will select up to five recipients. All applicants will agree to accept the decision of Crown Battery and Scholarship America as final.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

Applicants will be notified in April.

Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Non-recipients will be notified as well.

  • A statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
