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

Applicants
An applicant must be a child of an eligible employee (as defined below). Children of an eligible employee include unmarried or married children, natural born or adopted children, stepchildren, or children for whom the eligible Fluor employee has been appointed legal guardian or been given legal custody. An applicant must be 26 years of age or younger as of the scholarship application deadline. The applicant cannot be a full-time, salaried Fluor employee; however, they can be an hourly part-time employee or an intern.

Additionally, to be eligible the applicant must:

  • Be in their last year of high school or upper secondary school, a high school or upper secondary school graduate, or a post-secondary graduate or undergraduate (Note: Applicants from Australia and the United Kingdom must be pursuing a higher education course of First Degree or Higher National Diploma standard);
  • Be enrolled in or accepted to attend a full-time course of study for the entire 2021-22 academic year at a bona fide college, university, or vocational-technical school located in a permissible country for undergraduate studies; AND
  • Maintain satisfactory academic performance (e.g., a 2.0 cumulative GPA or higher on a 4.0 scale).

Employees

An eligible employee must be employed by a Fluor Corporation subsidiary. A Fluor employee working on a joint venture remains an eligible employee if they are employed by a Fluor entity while performing work for the joint venture. Individuals who become employees of Fluor through an acquisition must contact their local human resources representative to determine their eligibility.

**Eligible employees must have accumulated one year of service as of March 1, 2021.

Additionally, an eligible employee must meet ONE of the following requirements, to the extent permitted by local, state, and federal laws and regulations, as well as any applicable country laws and regulations:

  • Be an employee on an approved leave of absence.

Staff salaried staff employees of TRS are eligible. (Note: TRS hourly contract employees are not eligible)

In the unfortunate circumstance of an employee’s death in the preceding scholarship plan year, their children remain eligible to apply for a scholarship during the 2021-2022 scholarship plan year.

School Requirement

Schools that are, or are in countries that are, prohibited by applicable law from participating in the scholarship program are not eligible to be a bona fide college, university or vocational technical school. See, www.treasury.gov/ofac to search for ineligible institutions. If a recipient of a scholarship is not enrolled full-time in an approved educational institution when the August 2021 school year begins, the student will forfeit the award. The recipient must reapply during the next scholarship award period to be eligible to receive another scholarship.

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:

  • Qualified students demonstrating no financial need are eligible for an honorarium of $1,500.
  • Financial need-based awards will range from a minimum of $2,000 to a maximum of $4,000.
  • All awards are renewable for up to three years for a specific course of study, and terminate when a recipient is awarded a certificate, diploma or first undergraduate degree is awarded, whichever comes first.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in May. 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

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.
