El Sol Memorial Scholarship Program

El Sol Contracting and Construction Corporation has established a scholarship program to assist children of employees who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

The 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. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

    *Dependent children are defined as natural and legally adopted children or stepchildren living in the employee’s household or primarily supported by the employee.

Applicants must also be one of the following:

  • Secondary students in grades 8-11 who plan to attend private high school as 9th through 12th graders.

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. Up to 3 awards will be granted each year. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.

Awards are for private secondary OR undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in early June.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of El Sol Contracting and Construction Corporation. 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, and an online recommendation.

Students planning to attend private secondary school will be reviewed in a separate pool of applicants from those planning to attend a postsecondary institution.

Financial need will be considered. Recipients will be selected from a pool of qualified applicants with primary consideration given to those who demonstrate the greatest need.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of El Sol Contracting and Construction Corporation play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
