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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Awards are granted on the basis of:
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.
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.
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.
If applicable for Global applicants:
Also, as part of your application, one online recommendation must be completed on your behalf by 3:00 p.m. CT on May 6, 2020.
