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.
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:
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:
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.
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.
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 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.
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. Satisfactory academic performance and full-time enrollment must be maintained in order for the award to be renewable. Scholarship awards are renewable for up to three years for one specific course of study or and terminate when a recipient is awarded a certificate, diploma, or first undergraduate degree is awarded, whichever comes first. Scholarship America will email renewal information to eligible students in mid-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:
One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than March 4, 2021 3:00 pm CT.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically with your application through the Scholarship America Hub.
