Dugan & Lopatka has established an education assistance program to assist employees’ children who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. Education Assistance is offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
This education assistance program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Applicants to the Dugan & Lopatka Education Assistance Program must be:
*Dependent children are defined as biological, step- or legally adopted children living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.
Children of Principals are ineligible to apply.
Education assistance is available to all students who meet the eligibility requirements. Financial need is not considered. Awards will be based on the designated annual budget, the number of applicants to the program and the full or part time status of the employee. Awards of up to $2,000 will be offered to dependents of part-time employees. Awards of up to $4,000 will be offered to dependents of full-time employees.
Assistance will be limited to no more than two dependent children per employee per academic year.
Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements up to a maximum of four awards.
December graduates are eligible to receive one-half of their award.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in early May.
