Curtiss-Wright Sons and Daughters Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

The Curtiss-Wright Sons and Daughters Scholarship Award was established to provide educational opportunities to the children of Curtiss-Wright employees. The program was developed to assist families of Curtiss-Wright employees and help off-set the rising cost of postsecondary education and promote academic achievement. Curtiss-Wright strongly believes that cost should not prevent a student from gaining access to higher education. Our scholarships honor the dedication, contributions and achievements of our past and present leaders, our employees and our customers.

Our program awards 90 scholarships to students who exemplify excellence in their academic work, show demonstrable courage and fortitude in overcoming odds and a commitment to family and community. Students with a passion for excellence exemplify the traits the Company considers invaluable in developing the skills and tools needed to become leaders of tomorrow in any career path they choose.

This 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 are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Curtiss-Wright Scholarship Program must be:

  • Dependent* children, age 24 and under, as of the application deadline of full-time Curtiss-Wright employees.
    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
  • High school seniors or students in their final year of secondary school (equivalent to a U.S. high school), high school/secondary school graduates or current college undergraduate students
  • Plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year.

Children of the CEO and his/her direct reports are ineligible to participate in the program.


Ninety (90) scholarships at $2,500 each will be granted to those candidates who demonstrate outstanding personal achievement in addition to Scholarship America’s standard recipient selection procedures including the consideration of past academic performance and future potential, leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, statement of career and educational aspirations and goals, and an outside appraisal.

Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet the eligibility requirements.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Selection of Recipients
