The Fluor Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Dear Employee:

We are pleased to provide you and members of your family with information about the Fluor Scholarship Program. We are glad that Fluor can play a role in encouraging well-qualified young people to seek higher education after completing high school or upper secondary school. We hope our scholarship program will provide such an incentive to members of your family.

These instructions describe The Fluor Scholarship Program provided for children of employees of Fluor Corporation and its subsidiaries. The purpose of the program is to encourage employees’ children to further their education after completing high school or upper secondary school, to honor them for their achievements and to assist them in financing that education. Awards are made on the basis of academic merit and potential to succeed without regard to race, creed, color, gender, religion, or disability.

The program is independently 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

Employees must have accumulated one year of service and be employed by Fluor Corporation or one of its subsidiaries as of March 2, 2020.

Students are eligible to apply if they are:

  • Children of full-time salaried employees worldwide who are employed by Fluor Corporation or its subsidiaries.
  • Children of part-time salaried employees who are employed by Fluor Corporation or its subsidiaries and who work a minimum of 20 hours a week.
  • Children of Fluor employees may themselves be hourly part-time employees or hourly summer employees, however, may not be salaried full-time employees.
  • Children of employees who have met the service requirements and as of March 2 of the program year are on a leave of absence, or on a company retirement plan, or have passed away during the year ended March 2 of the program year.
    • Retirees of Fluor Fernald must have a retirement date of December 1, 1992, or later.
    • Retirees of Fluor Hanford or Fluor Government Group must have a retirement date of October 1, 1996, or later.
  • Children of salaried employees who are employed by TRS. TRS contract employees are not eligible to apply.
  • Children of non-U.S. craft workers are not eligible to apply.

Eligibility of employees of companies acquired through an acquisition requires a review process that may not allow for proper program notification to the affected employees. Affected employees should contact their Human Resource Manager.

School Requirement

Eligible children must be in their last year of high school or upper secondary school, be high school or upper secondary school graduates, or be post-secondary school undergraduates, currently enrolled or planning to enroll in a full-time course of study for the entire 2020-21 academic year at a bona fide college, university, community college or vocational-technical school located in any permissible country for undergraduate studies only. Schools that are, or are in countries that are, prohibited by applicable law are not eligible (see www.treasury.gov/ofac). Applicants from Australia and United Kingdom must be pursuing a higher education course of first Degree or Higher National Diploma standard. Students must be accepted by that institution during the year for which the scholarship is given. If a recipient student is not enrolled full-time when the school year begins, the student will forfeit the award and must reapply.

U.S. Only

Children of U.S.-based open shop hourly employees, including craft/maintenance technicians and hourly non-manual employees who have accumulated 1,000 hours of service in the calendar year prior to the program year and who are employed by Fluor Corporation or its subsidiaries.

Contractors include those hired by Fluor Corporation and any of its subsidiaries.

Definition

Eligible children are defined as employees’ children who are 26 years of age or younger as of the application deadline. These include unmarried or married children, natural born or adopted children, stepchildren, or children for whom the Fluor employee has been appointed legal guardian or been given legal custody.

The Scholarship America Hub

In order to match you with other scholarship opportunities, the Hub may ask certain questions regarding membership to certain community programs. With the increasing cost of higher education, Scholarship America, along with their partners, are trying to give students more opportunities to cover their financial needs. How you answer these membership questions has no bearing on your eligibility for the Fluor Scholarship Program.

Award information:

  • Honorarium awards of $1,500 will be available for students who show outstanding potential but no financial need.
  • Financial need-based awards will range from a minimum of $2,000 to a maximum of $4,000.
  • All awards are renewable, including honorariums, for up to three years for a specific course of study or until a certificate, diploma or first undergraduate degree is awarded, whichever comes first.
  • All awards are for undergraduate study and payable in U.S. dollars.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in June. The Fluor Scholarship Program is a competitive program; not all applicants will be recipients. If not selected as a recipient, the student may reapply each year eligibility requirements are met.

Selection of Recipients

Awards are granted on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • Statement of career and educational goals and aspirations
  • An online recommendation

Financial need will be considered in determining the size of the awards. Academic records from different countries will be converted to a common grading scale for evaluation and comparison.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any Fluor Corporation employee play a part in the selection.

Award Renewals

Honorarium awards and financial need-based awards are renewable. To renew scholarship awards, students must submit a copy of their transcript for the academic year just completed. Continuance of the scholarship award depends on maintaining a satisfactory academic record in a full-time course of study and continuation of the program by Fluor. Scholarship awards are renewable for up to three years for one specific course of study or until a certificate, diploma, or first undergraduate degree is awarded, whichever comes first. Scholarship America will email the proper renewal forms in January.

If the recipient meets the requirements outlined in this section, the scholarship award will be renewed regardless of the employment status of the employee parent.

Payment of Awards

Scholarship America will process the award check in one installment in early August for the recipients attending university in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada. Recipients attending university outside of the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada will be sent a link to a wire transfer form within their notification letter requesting bank information. The full award will be wired to the student’s bank in late August or early September.
